New hybrid vessel meets pollution standards
Wight Shipyard Co has launched a 9m hybrid patrol vessel designed by Chartwell Marine to meet strict new pollution standards.
Launched at Seawork 2019, Chasewell features twin Volvo D3-220 engines offering 147kW at 3800RPM and twin ZF63A ZF marine gearboxes. It also includes a twin Hamilton HJ2411 waterjet, twin transfluid HM560, and a twin EM220-20 electric motor.
“The Chasewell is the first 9m Hybrid Patrol vessel to be built in the UK. This revolutionary vessel sets new standards in hybrid vessel design and build and is fitting that it comes from WSC. We are a British Shipbuilding company based on the Isle of Wight with centuries of traditional and shipbuilding heritage.” said Peter Morton, CEO of WSC.
WSC is known for its environmentally friendly builds in the ferry sector including Red Funnel’s Red Jet 6 & 7, two MBNA Thames Clippers, along with multiple ferry deliveries for export worldwide.
Currently the new Arksen Hybrid Explorer yacht is in-build with high spec technology and progressive solutions to meet future environmental requirements and goals.
