VESSELS 45m Cat for AZAM 18 Meter Fire-Floats for Bangladesh
Robert Allan Ltd. has delivered a design of two unique ? re-? oats to Khulna Shipyard Ltd. in Bangladesh. The boats will measure 18.9 m x 5.3 m with a special hard chine semi-displacement hull designed for river service and ? tted with twin open style skegs for debris protection.
The all aluminum hulls will be powered by two 560 kW 6135SFM85 John Deere main engines for a speed of 20 knots. Reduction gears will be Reintjes WAF 244 with 2.5:1 reduction ratio driving stainless steel shafts and bronze propellers. Engines are easily removed from ves- sel via matching hatches in main deck and overhead in- house top. Self-propelled CFD simulations run by Robert
Allan Ltd. con? rm the design speed of 20 knots is achiev- able. A single Westerbeke 23.0 EGED generator provides electrical power. Two 2,000 liter/minute ? re pumps will be ? tted, each driven by a 55 kW IVECO diesel engine. The pumps are located low in the boat so priming systems are not required. Two 2,000 liter/minute ? re monitors are lo-
