Fintry and Kockums agree
Fintry Marine Design AG and Kockums AB have reached an agreement to cooperate in the design and construction and marketing of fast ferries

Fintry Marine Design AG and Kockums AB have reached an agreement to cooperate in the design and construction and marketing of fast ferries.

Fintry Marine Design AG and Kockums AB, part of ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems, have reached an agreement to cooperate in the design and construction and marketing of fast ferries, workboats and pilot boats in a novel sandwich structure made of carbon fibre.

Fintry Marine has just placed its first order for a CarboCAT MPV23 with its new cooperation partner Kockums AB at the Karlskrona Yard in Sweden. The Fintry CarboCAT MPV23 catamaran is going to be the first new construction unit in a series of ten of the latest generation MPVs. Delivery is expected this month.

The new series has been specially developed by the new partnership in association with the offshore wind industry. It consists of an 18m crew catamaran, a 20m service catamaran and the 23m multi purpose catamaran, with a further 38m vessel under development.

The Fintry Marine Group and Kockums are now able to offer the offshore wind industry a design concept that incorportes all the requirements for service in offshore wind farms. The MPV23 and MPV38, especially, are capable of tasks such as the transport of personnel in comfort and high capacity freight carrying, all done with efficient handling and manoeuvrability.

The comprehensive specification includes MTU engines, Hamilton Jets, bow thrusters and power supplied by twin generators. Deck fittings and rescue equipment all contribute to a high security level even in difficult sea and weather conditions.

'Our partner Kockums AB is the leading international carbon composite specialist, with know how acquired over decades of commercial shipbuilding, said Fintry Marine MD Lindsay Leggat-Smith. "The high quality of the new generation of Fintry CarboCATs is guaranteed by Kockums' building processes, materials and equipment, which support the economic and investment potential of the vessels."

Fintry CarboCATS can operate in nearshore areas as well as in wind farms up to 100 nm offshore. They are built to DNV Class + 1A1 HSLC R2 CREW norms and relevant national safety rules.
