First order for MJP’s X Series Waterjets
Marine Jet Power (MJP) has sold the first of its new X Series waterjets to Metal Craft Marine (MCM).
MJP will deliver the first two production units of the 310 X to MCM for its Kuwait 50’ Firestorm vessel, which is capable of 43 knots and features Volvo D13 735 kW diesel engines. The X Series, born from the Ultrajet line, is designed to improve top speed and operating efficiencies by 10% compared to the previously installed actual flow propulsion.
“We couldn’t have asked for a better partner,” said Jim Campbell, COO at MJP. “We are very excited to work with Metal Craft Marine on this project and are thrilled to offer customers our newest product offering with speed and efficiency improvements.”
Introduced to the industry this summer, the X Series features the latest advancements in waterjet propulsion and is the culmination of precision engineering as well as years of experience creating stainless steel mixed flow propulsion solutions, with over 100 million running hours.
MJP is due to deliver the first units to Metal Craft Marine in Q1 of 2019. The order was announced during the first day of the International WorkBoat Show.
