for the establishment of foreign-trade zones in ports of entry of the United 
States, to expedite and encourage foreign commerce, and for other purposes, 
as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u) (the Act), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the 
Board) is authorized to grant to corporations the privilege of establishing 
foreign-trade zones in or adjacent to U.S. Customs ports of entry;

Whereas, The Board's regulations (15 CFR Part 400) provide for the
establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities
cannot serve the specific use involved;

Whereas, The New Hampshire State Port Authority, Grantee of Foreign-Trade
Zone No. 81, has made application (filed 9-18-91, FTZ Docket 54-91, 56 FR
49742, 10- 1-91) to the Board for authority to establish a special-purpose
subzone at the ABB Combustion Engineering, Inc., plant in Newington, New
Hampshire;

Whereas, Notice of said application has been given in the Federal Register
and public comment has been invited; and,

Whereas, The Board has found that the requirements of the Act and the
Board's regulations are satisfied and that approval of the application is
in the public interest;

Now, therefore, The Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone
at the ABB Combustion Engineering, Inc., plant in Newington, New Hampshire,
designated on the records of the Board as Foreign-Trade Subzone 81C, at the
location described in the application, subject to the FTZ Act and the
