Marine Jet Power Unveils X-HT Waterjet at SeaWork 2024: Powering Efficiency for Workboats and Beyond

Southampton, UK (June 11, 2024) – Marine Jet Power (MJP), a world leader in waterjet propulsion, unveils the groundbreaking X-HT waterjet at SeaWork 2024, Europe’s largest commercial workboat exhibition. Designed for exceptional efficiency in low to medium speed applications (up to 35 knots), the X-HT particularly targets wind farm crew transfer vessels (CTVs) but boasts wider applicability for various workboats.

New Marine Jet Power High Thrust X-Series Waterjet.

Revolutionizing Efficiency:

Since its inception in 2018, the X-Series has revolutionized waterjet technology with its advanced design and superior performance. The introduction of the X-HT continues this legacy, offering enhanced capabilities tailored for vessels that require high thrust at slower speeds, making it an ideal solution for the specialized needs of wind farm support vessels.

Compact Design, Big Performance:

The X-HT series boasts a compact design that allows for larger diameter jets to be installed in narrower hulls, optimizing performance without compromising space. Additionally, the lower-input power capability of the X-HT ensures it remains lightweight and cost-effective to operate, crucial for the efficiency and sustainability of wind farm operations.

Key technical features of the X-HT include:

  • Enhanced Thrust and Efficiency: The X-HT jets delivers more thrust compared to other jets in the same range and is optimized for efficiency at slow speeds. This makes the X-HT particularly well-suited for vessels operating in and around wind farms, where precise maneuvering and consistent power are essential.
  • Space-Saving Design: The compact design allows for larger diameter jets to be fitted into narrower hulls, maximizing thrust without requiring extensive modifications to the vessel’s structure.
  • Range of Sizes and Power Ratings: The X-HT is currently available in three sizes, the 280 X-HT, 310 X-HT, and 350 X-HT, with maximum power ratings of 611 kW, 800 kW, and 1000 kW respectively. This range of options ensures that there is a suitable model for a variety of vessel types and operational requirements.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Low-power operation reduces fuel consumption and emissions. 

SeaWork Showcase: Visitors to the MJP stand (Q17) at SeaWork can experience the X-HT waterjet firsthand and discuss its benefits with MJP representatives.

Executive Quotes:

“We are excited to expand our X-Series line with the High Thrust variant,” said Jonas Tegström, CEO of MJP. “The X-HT combines our cutting-edge technology with practical enhancements that meet the evolving needs of our customers, particularly in the wind farm sector, providing superior efficiency and thrust in a compact, economic package.”

“CTV operators prioritize high static thrust for safe and efficient crew transfers,” says Robert Magnusson, Global Sales Director. “This trend has led to a rise in propeller selection in recent years. However, with the introduction of our new MJP X-HT Series, we can now match the performance of the best propeller systems in static thrust, while still delivering the numerous advantages that waterjets offer.”

The MJP X-HT is specifically engineered for applications that demand high performance at low to medium speeds, making it suitable for various commercial and industrial applications beyond wind farms, including passenger ferries, patrol boats, and other utility vessels. Its innovative design and efficiency are expected to set a new standard in the waterjet propulsion industry.
