Successful patrol boat sea trials

BMT Nigel Gee (BMT), a subsidiary of BMT Group, is pleased to announce successful sea trials for the first of five 24m Patrol Boats, built at Ares Shipyard (Ares).

BMT has partnered with Ares to design and build seventeen patrol boats from advanced composites, for the Qatar Coastguard.  The order comprises of three different vessel sizes: five of 24 metres, 10 of 34 metres capable of achieving over 30 knots and two of 48 metres also capable of over 30 knots.

The recently conducted sea trials for the 24m ARES 75 HERCULES Patrol Boat have been hailed a success with the vessel achieving over 38 knots in the laden condition. The first 34m ARES 110 HERCULES Patrol Boat has been launched with sea trials to be completed soon. By December 2016 a total of three boats are scheduled to be delivered.

BMT is responsible for the Naval Architecture, including hull development, and class level design & engineering work on all three sizes of vessel. BMT’s team of naval architects and engineers has worked closely with Ares to develop the designs for the vessels which meet the customer’s stringent performance and comfort requirements.

Commenting on the project John Bonafoux, BMT Nigel Gee’s Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to continue our collaboration with Ares and for the opportunity to extend and reinforce our expertise in high speed patrol boats.  We have partnered with Ares on a wide variety of projects and enjoy working with such a skilled yard. The speed, seakeeping, handling and noise levels during the sea trials were all excellent and the build quality is outstanding.”
