Q-West has delivered another prime Teknicraft-designed, Scania driven, Hamilton Jet-powered patrol vessel.
Q-West’s approach to building these vessels was to build craft that operate for a large amount of hours and to minimise the downtime and refit work for the future.
‘T R Healy Takes On The Job’ and ‘ Catching Up With The Aniolam Express’.
The reason for the 10 year repower/refit on Aoraki was to extend the operational life by five year, improve the quality and standard of the vessel, improve fuel/maintenance efficiencies, improve emission standards and reliability – which included an overhaul of teh interior and exterior of the vessel.
The 13m ‘Aniolam Express’ is designed by Teknicraft Design Limited as a foil assisted passenger catamaran that will operate from the main workers’ villages on Komos 57nm, Kavieng 76nm, Namatanai 41nm and the mine site at Londolovit on Lihir Island, Papua New Guinea.
The recent launching and delivery of a purpose built 1200 gross tonne spoil dump barge has certainly turned some heads.
