[Docket A(32b1)-7-95]

Foreign-Trade Zone 155--Calhoun County, Texas, Request for Export
Manufacturing Authority, ABB Randall Corporation (Gas Plant Modules)

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Calhoun-Victoria FTZ, Inc., grantee of FTZ 155,
pursuant to Sec. 400.32(b)(1) of the Board's regulations (15 CFR part
400), requesting authority on behalf of ABB Randall Corporation (ABB
Randall) to manufacture gas plant modules for export under zone
procedures within FTZ 155. It was formally filed on May 8, 1995.
    The authority would be used for the fabrication of nine gas plant
modules for shipment abroad as part of an overseas plant construction
contract involving ABB Randall which will be completed by the end of
1996. Certain components (about 80% of total) would be sourced from
abroad, including: flat rolled steel and steel alloy products, steel
and steel alloy bars/rods and angles/shapes, reservoirs/vessels/tanks
(iron or steel), steel, copper and aluminum wire, steel, copper and
aluminum pipe/tubing, pumps, electric power motors and generators,
electrical signaling devices, and electrical machines.
    Because all of the modules would be exported, zone procedures would
exempt ABB Randall from Customs duty payments on the foreign materials.
    Public comment on the application is invited from interested
parties. Submissions (original and three copies) shall be addressed to
the Board's Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing
period of their receipt is June 19, 1995. Rebuttal comments in response
to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted
during the subsequent 15-day period to July 3, 1995.
    A copy of the application and the accompanying exhibits will be
available for public inspection at the following location: Office of
the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, U.S. Department of
Commerce, Room 3716, 14th Street & Pennsylvania Avenue, NW.,
Washington, DC 20230.

    Dated: May 12, 1995.
John J. Da Ponte, Jr.,
Executive Secretary.
