French shipyard Constructions Mecaniques de Normandie (CMN) has launched the first of an initial batch of three HSI32 interceptors destined for the Mozambique Navy.

The vessel was launched at CMN’s facility in Cherbourg on 18 March. The three vessels are scheduled to be delivered via ship over the coming months.

The HSI32s has a length of 32.2 metres and a width of 6.4 metres. Crew complement is 12. The vessel is constructed from aluminium for light weight and agility. Sensor options could include a surveillance radar, electro-optical sensors and a satellite link for transferring images and other data.

During trials the speed well above 50 kn was measured and can undertake patrols for three days, with a range of 800 nautical miles at 12 knots or 580 nautical miles at 33 knots. A 4.8 metre can be launched from the back of the boat. These vessels are ideal for anti- piracy, anti-terrorism and anti-smuggling missions.

Umoe Mandal AS, Norway – 2 x MJP CSU 650

The innovative Wave Craft vessel, constructed by Umoe Mandal AS, Umoe Ventus, has started operations with DONG Energy on Borkum Riffgrund 1 on an eight month charter. Umoe Ventus, is a “Surface Effect Ship” (SES) which uses technology that lifts the vessel with an air cushion, which is enclosed by the hulls and flexible rubber sealing at the aft and in the bow. This allows the vessel to travel at speed in higher sea states without compromising passenger comfort. The design developed by Umoe has a length of 26m and a beam of 10m and in plan view is virtually rectangular in shape. The vessel is powered by a pair of diesel engines coupled with MJP’s waterjet propulsion system. The water- jets operate effectively despite the close presence of the enclosed air cushion to the jet intakes. Separate engines power the lift fans installed in the superstructure.
