<FONT SIZE="+1">"Conserve water . . . take a Navy Shower"</FONT><P>

The very fact that hot water is available for the<BR>
use of INDEPENDENCE crewmembers when<BR>
they want it is one of the reasons that<BR>
M Division is so important to the ship.<p>
More important than just shower water, this<BR>
division has the responsibility for the<br>
operation, repair and maintenance of the<br>
main steam propulsion engines, steam<BR>
turbine electric generators, and<br>
fresh water distilling plants.<p>
Located in each of the four main machinery<BR>
spaces, the main engines receive 1200 PSI<BR>
superheated steam from the boilers and use it to<BR>
generate up to 70,000 hp to turn each of the four<br>
screws. On days when there is no "natural wind,"<br>
the main engines can propel the ship with<br>
enough force to create up to 30 knots of<br>
"man made " wind. Without this wind, the<br>
launching and recovery of jet aircraft<br>
would be virtually impossible.<p>
The eight electric turbogenerators are<br>
each capable of producing up to<br>
1500 KW of 450 volt, 69 HZ power.<p>
M Division - owners and operators of the<br>
"INDY power and light company."<p>
