Three Pilot Boats for Tanzania Ports Authority (TPA)


by Southern Engineering Co. Ltd (SECO) - published on 18 March 2020 196

Southern Engineering Co. Ltd (SECO) recently secured a contract from the Tanzania Ports Authority (TPA) to construct and deliver three pilot boats.

Designed to specification by Western Australia-based award-winning naval architecture firm Southerly Designs, the vessels will have a length of 20 meters, depth of 3 meters, and a draft of 1.7 meters.

Constructed in steel with an aluminum superstructure and classed by Bureau Veritas, the deckhouse will include seating for two crew and up to 12 passengers, while accommodation for three crew will be provided below deck.

A notable feature of these hulls is the twin skeg arrangement, offering outstanding protection to the running gear and facilitating the use of oversized rudders. The twin keels will provide significantly improved directional stability and roll damping.

Large, direct glazed windows will provide true 360-degree visibility from the central conning position with overhead windows providing clear visibility for approach to the ship and pilot boarding facility. In addition, the split arrangement of the forward deck railings provides an unobstructed view ahead.

Delivery of these boats is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020.
