Western Marine Shipyard LTD, in Bangladesh has chosen to equip their new build, a 54 m offshore patrol vessel, with a Servogear Ecoflow PropulsorTM system. In addition to the main propulsion from Servogear, the vessel will have a Water Jet placed in the centre of the transom, working as a booster.
The vessel will be operating for the Kenyan Ministry of Fisheries. Icarus Marine Pty. LTD in South Africa is the designer.
Gunther Migeotte, Executive Director of Icarus Marine says “I am very happy to have the Servogear Ecoflow on the vessel as it offered the best performance for the vessel allowing us to make speed with a more comfortable safety margin that any other propulsion system could offer.”
