Incat, Australian builder of fast ferries has produced a design for a modern day fast train ferry with a capacity for 44 container or special wagons aimed at speeding up rail freight across water. The design follows the Incat preference for a catamaran hull of 1,700 dwt with a LOA of 426 ft . Propulsion is by four medium speed MAN 20V28/33D diesels each rated at 12,064 hp (9 MW) at 1,000 rpm powering a Wärtsilä LJX 1500 SR waterjet. Running with 200 tons deadweight, speeds of 39+ kn and fully laden with 1,700 t speeds in excess of 30 kn may be expected. In addition to the 900 rail lane meters on the main deck, there is an upper deck for road vehicles and passenger accommodation for up to 200 passengers and crew. [More]
