Indian Coast Guard Follows Up With Tognum
Tognum has received a follow-up order for the delivery of MTU engines and automation systems for 20 new vessels for the Indian Coast Guard. In 2009, Tognum signed two deals for engines and automation systems for the Indian Coast Guard with a total value of US$46.5 million (€32.5 million).
The Series 4000 engines, produced in Friedrichshafen, Germany, will be supplied to the Cochin Shipyard Ltd. in the southern Chinese city of Kochi. The 20 inshore fast patrol vessels will be powered by triple type 16V 4000 M90 engines with an output of 2720 kW each. In combination with waterjet drives, they will propel the vessel at speeds up to 35 knots, Tognum said.
The systems to be supplied for the 48 m patrol vessels include the MTU Callosum ship automation system with an integrated product for monitoring all of the ship’s services. The delivery of the order’s 60 engines will occur between 2011 and 2014.
