New waterjet propulsion technology at Seawork

A new waterjet and advanced vessel control system will be launched by HamiltonJet at Seawork.

The new generation HTX30 waterjet can deliver up to 570kW for use in patrol and commercial workboats up to 18m in overall length and is capable of achieving higher vessel top speed, improved manoeuvring response, higher static thrust, and faster vessel acceleration.

HamiltonJet said: “The waterjet’s integrated designs also allows for much improved mechanical durability, easier installation, improved corrosion protection and enhanced steering and reverse capability.”


New advanced vessel control system AVX is fully integrated with HamiltonJet waterjets and has class leading dual redundancy for improved vessel system availability.

The AVX system has compact modules for optimum bridge layout, flexible installation, compact station display unit with colour screen for improved status, ergonomics, and safety information.

AVX also has the JETanchor positioning system option available, featuring station keeping and virtual anchor functionality. Other advanced control options include interfaces for remote control for third party control systems (USVs), while the system is also ready for autonomous systems.

The AVX system has been successfully tested in several search & rescue boats for the past two years.
