Marine Jet Power (MJP) has unveiled its new waterjet X Series which reduces power demand by up to 20% and can reduce weight by up to 10% compared to axial flow jets.

The range of waterjets are designed to build on MJPs successful duplex steel product line by offering a highly efficient, highly durable product at a much lower price point.

“We’ve really taken the time to design and engineer this product with designers, builders and operators in mind,” said Magnus Sörenson, MJP’s CEO. “This product is easy to install and even easier to maintain in the field, saving time and money over the total lifecycle of the product.”

With key features such as one-piece skidded installation and easily accessible

inspection hatches, the X Series has been designed from the start to be easily

installed and maintained in the field.

While the X Series has been optimized to integrate with the company’s JetMaster 3 electronics system, the new jets have also been designed for hydromechanical (HM) controls.

The series currently features three sizes, the 280X, 310X and 350X.
