MJP Takes Order for First New X Series Waterjets
NEW ORLEANS, La. (Nov. 28, 2018) – Marine Jet Power (MJP) announced today, during the first day of the International WorkBoat show, that it has taken the first order for the new X Series waterjets.
Marine Jet Power will deliver the first two production units of the 310 X to Metal Craft Marine (MCM) for their Kuwait 50’ Firestorm vessel. The state-of-the-art fire boat features Volvo D13 735 kW diesel engines and MJP 310 X stainless steel waterjet propulsion.
Capable of 43 knots, this vessel is the fourth in a series of boats previously installed with MJP Ultrajet propulsion. The new X Series, born from the Ultrajet line, will further improve top speed and operating efficiencies by 10 percent compared to the previously installed actual flow propulsion.
“We couldn’t have asked for a better partner,” said Jim Campbell, COO for Marine Jet Power, Inc. “We are very excited to work with Metal Craft Marine on this project and are thrilled to offer customers our newest product offering with speed and efficiency improvements.”
Introduced to the industry this summer, the X Series features the latest advancements in waterjet propulsion and is the culmination of precision engineering as well as years of experience creating stainless steel mixed flow propulsion solutions, with over 100 million running hours.
MJP is set to deliver to first units to Metal Craft Marine in Q1 of 2019.
