New contract reinforces MJP waterjets position in india

MJP is reinforcing its position as Waterjet supplier to Indian Coast Guard. In the aftermath of the 26/11 2008 attack in Mumbai the Indian authorities have decided to reinforce its Coast Guard forces. MJP have started the first deliveries of MJP 650 DD CSU jets for in total 36 ship sets in a prestigious order for Larsen & Toubro. That order is followed by an order for Bharati Shipyard who is also building for the Indian Coast Guard. Interceptors are included in the MJP Waterjets scope of supply for both Bharati and L&T to offer an improved ride control. The Bharati vessel is also equipped with rudders to enhance steering control and course stability. Please contact MJP for more details.


MJP have during 2009 and 2010 been involved in a significant technical development with a customer with speci?c requirements. The vessel has two very different operating conditions. One is with the jet in the waterline as usual.
The other is with the jets very deep down under the water level. The hull shape also called for very speci? c and limited design requirements. All together the limitations led to a complete new design and development of the steering. The hydraulic system is ? tted above the jet and inboard. It is able to operate two
jets in parallel movement with a single hydraulic control. The testing of this new equipment we call CSUI has started in the spring 2011.


MJP Waterjets have during 2010 completed the deliveries of equipment for 22 ship sets to the French Shipyard OCEA. Their 30 meter design is equipped with MJP 500 DRB waterjets. With 1340 kW engines the ship speed is above 30 knots. The shipyard is marketing the successful and impressive design around the world and MJP have received completing orders for more vessels. The delivery includes complete GRP intakes bolted to the aluminum structure. The shipyard appreciates the efficient mounting procedure, the performance of the vessel and the back up and support from MJP Waterjets.

South Africa

In 2010 MJP started in South Africa. It has resulted in several deliveries. The first had sea trials in the beginning of 2011. The vessel is equipped with MJP 500 DRB jets. The vessel is 30 meter and speed is 35 knots, with three 970 kW engines. MJP Waterjets congratulates the team in South Africa to a job well done.

Israel / Romania

In 20110 MJP completed the delivery of four ship sets for Israel Shipyard and their project for Romanian Border Police. The project followed a successful delivery with jets for a patrol vessel with 2 x 1790 kW and over 45 knot speed. The Romanian vessels are equipped with 2 x 1630 kW and is still achieving a very good 43 knot ship speed. The shipyard commended the MJP support during delivery and the excellent ship performance. The yard noted almost half the time to accelerate from 0 to 40 knots with MJP Waterjets compared to a sister vessel equipped with a competing brand.


MJP Waterjets organized a training to ship operators in Zhuhai, South China in April 2011.
