A new shipbuilding contract has been signed between the aluminium shipyard Kewatec AluBoat in Finland and the City of Landskrona in Sweden. The contract covers the delivery of a custom built fast rescueboat which should be delivered in May 2018.

The boat is 13,7 meter long, 3,7 meter wide och has a 15 tonnes displacement. The top speed will be around 35 knots. The boat is equipped with twin diesel engines and IPS-propulsion drives from Volvo Penta. In addition to high tech ambulance equipment, the boat will also be used in firefighting and sea rescue tasks, and that´s why there will also be a fire pump, fire cannon and thermal camera installed.

Kewatec AluBoat Sales Manager Jan Wargh is very positive to the new contract; ”Kewatec has already before been known as one of the market leaders in the Nordic countries, and it is great pleasure to deliver our modern vessels also to ambulance operations.” The company has extensive references of engineering, building and delivering Pilot boats, Work boats, Fire and Oil rescue boat, Passenger vessels as well as Pleasure yachts.

“The new boat model is based on our passenger vessel series, and our strong competence from building boats to rescue departments made it pretty easy to adapt the boat to a fantastic multi-tool for firefighting and sea rescue tasks as well”, Jan Wargh explain.
