Baltic Workboats designed and built this, the first battery hybrid multipurpose patrol vessel for Estonian Police and Border Guard Authorities.
The wave piercing patrol vessel is 44.6m long and is equipped with cutting edge new technology for fulfilling SAR, surveillance, fire-fighting, oil recovery, buoy tendering and transport duties. The hybrid propulsion plant provides a maximum speed of 27 knots, while the vessel’s economic cruising speed is 10-12 knots with a range of 3000 nautical miles. A fully integrated electrical and energy storage system offers the option to run the vessel on a full electrical mode and reach the speed of 12 knots. In the event of a SAR or special operation tasking it can deploy its 7m workboat and Rescue Runner.
The vessel will have a crew of 10 persons, although upto 18 persons can be accommodated onboard when a larger crew is required for longer missions.
This is the biggest patrol vessel built by Baltic Workboats and first in the company’s new range of battery hybrid patrol vessels.
