Design and Engineering of a 15M High Speed Fire Fighting Vessel

About project

Design and Engineering of a 15M high speed Fire Fighting vessel, intended for rapid intervention within a port and coastal environment.

A truly challenging yet rewarding project requiring the NAS team to design and develop a small craft having a remarkably efficient hull and fire-fighting abilities.

The full aluminium 15M Bureau Veritas compliant vessel is capable of extinguishing large fires with its remote-controlled roof monitor and two stern mounted manual monitors. This system is powered by a single 600m3/hr seawater pump connected through means of a PTO from one of the main engines. The vessel is highly versatile with its high speed 20-24knot intervention speed and can store loose firefighting as well as medical intervention equipment to be an all-round first responder on scene.

The Interior cabin can accommodate comfortably up to 6 persons, with space for a stretcher as well as a small pantry and toilet facility on lower deck. The cabin leads to the partially sheltered aft deck with benches intended to accommodate emergency stretchers.

The high-speed performance is guaranteed by its relatively lightweight design as well as twin 478bkW main engines. Her onboard power needs are met with two generator sets, and she is equipped with a bow thruster for additional manoeuvrability when operating.
