Kongsberg Maritime announced a milestone order which will see the company making its first delivery of large-size waterjets to Incat, Tasmania-based designers and builders of high-speed, environmentally-efficient wave piercing catamaran ferries. The scope of supply for the Incat newbuild currently designated ‘Hull 097’ exemplifies KM’s attention to detail while also demonstrating the company’s willingness to carry out bespoke modifications to suit clients’ requirements. In addition to four Kongsberg Kamewa S90-4 waterjets, the delivery will include a touch screen remote control system incorporating a CanMan Touch joystick, enabling the ship to be manoeuvred remotely from the bridge. KM’s standard two-tiller configuration for both the centre helm seat and navigator’s seat will be adapted in this instance to a single centre helm tiller.

KM will also be providing a separate aft-facing console comprising two touch screens, one Polar joystick with heading knob, two backup panels incorporating clutch in/clutch out buttons and one analogue steering and bucket position gauge per jet.

This landmark order represents a coming together of two enormously influential brands within the maritime industry. Kongsberg Kamewa , which has its roots in Sweden in the 1880s,– delivered its first waterjets 40 years ago and has now produced more than 10,000 of these propulsion systems, including the largest and most efficient waterjets available on the market. Kongsberg Kamewa’s extensive waterjet range is now developed and fabricated from KM’s world-class Hydrodynamic Research Centre, just outside Kristinehamn in Sweden, and from a new Product Centre in Kokkola, Finland.
