NEW CATAMARAN FERRY DESIGNED FOR OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY

Tuesday, September 25, 2018  (Comments: 1)

Australian ship designer Incat Crowther has announced the launch of 40m catamaran passenger ferry, ‘Jiang Men’, built by the Chinese Wang Tak yard.

Jiang Men is the third in a series that started with 2016’s Shi Zi Yang 7. In the constantly evolving highly-competitive China marketplace, Incat Crowther has continued to improve the design, realising 8% improvement in fuel burn. The all-aluminium vessel is engineered for robust structure and performance.

Jiang Men accommodates 199 passengers on two decks. The ferry is powered by a pair of MTU 16V2000 M72 main engines, each delivering 1080kW at 2250 rpm. She is propelled by MJP 650 CSU water jets for a top speed of 31 knots.

The vessel’s operational efficiency is mirrored by its maintenance simplicity, with design features such as clear overhead removal paths for the main engines and large switchboard / utility spaces adjacent to the engine rooms.

The vessel meets CCSs latest rules for sea-going high speed craft.

Sir, It is great news. I am interested to build fast ferries in India. I am intrigued why 31 knots speed was chosen and also what is the range of the vessel . Thanks n regards
