Ultrajets Chosen by FBM Babcock for Military Project

Ultra Dynamics has agreed to supply FBM Babcock Marine with 14 UltraJet 305 waterjets for a new military project According to Mike Lane, managing director, "The UltraJet 305 is the highest selling unit in the UltraJet range of marine jet drives and although successfully exceeding the specified static thrust with the UJ305 waterjet. Ultra Dynamics have been working for the last year to produce an even higher thrust unit with a similar installation envelope and weight." "The NEW unit designated the UJ305 HT (High Thrust) is being launched at SeaWork in June 2002. It has been specifically produced for Bridge Erection and towing purposes and for the numerous times in the commercial market, where boats actually exceed the weight to that originally specified by the builder due to the many additions by the end customer." "The NEW UJ305HT (High Thrust) has 10 percent higher thrust than the UltraJet UJ305 with only a four percent increase in weight and 95 percent of components/parts being common with the UJ305."
