INCAT Australia specs Aquatruck for Sydney Ferry rescue boat.
Global fast ferry builder International Catamarans has been busy with a full order book this year and four vessels on the go. The latest launch is the 400 pax Sydney Ferry – Ocean Adventurer owned by NRMA and operating between Manly and Circular Quay. Incat is based in the Prince of Wales Bay Maritime Precinct opposite PFG.
PFG supplies a number of specialist components to Incat for these vessels. Pictured are the heavy-duty HDPE tanks for fresh and black water. The tanks are designed by naval architects Revolution Design and built and tested to DNV standards before fitting into the hold of each vessel prior to the deck being put down. The tanks must be 100% correct as there is little room for error and no room for change once installed.
Incat chose the well proven 2.8 metre HDPE ISO approved Aquatruck “Bullet”, as the tender and rescue vessel for all their smaller ferries built over the past few years. This rota moulded boat is one of the few commercially compliant small tenders on the market in Australia with incredible strength and durability and specifically designed for harsh environments.
