Marine Jet Power (MJP) will deliver two 310 X waterjets to MetalCraft Marine (MCM) for installation on a Firestorm firefighting vessel.
The order is the first MJP has taken for the X Series waterjet, which was announced earlier this year.
The 50-foot vessel is powered by Volvo D13 745 kW diesel engines and was previously installed with MJP Ultrajet propulsion. The X Series, which was developed from the Ultrajet line, will improve the vessel’s top speed and operating efficiencies by 10%, MJP say. The units will be delivered in Q1 2019.
MJP’s chief operating officer Jim Campbell said “We are very excited to work with MetalCraft Marine on this project and are thrilled to offer customers our newest product offering with speed and efficiency improvements.”
