Commercial Marine – Since 2013, the 528-foot Nova Star had provided ferry service, cruising across 212 miles of the Atlantic Ocean from Portland, Maine to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia in 10 hours. Unfortunately, the service was shut down in October 2015. To maintain that important ferry connection for thousands of American visitors and stay competitive with other nearby tourist destinations, Nova Scotia needed to find a new vessel. A new operator, Bay Ferries, was named and the search was on for a new ship. The best chance for success would be a smaller ship that was less expensive to operate and could make the crossing faster.
Commercial Marine – The Alaska Marine Highway System’s (AMHS) high-speed vehicle ferry FVF Chenega offers locals and tourists front row seats to Alaska’s magnificent scenery. Some hail the world-class views spotted from the highway system’s routes on par with even the most opulent Alaskan cruise ships, with the added benefit of having access to Alaska’s more narrow straits and fjords.
Commercial Marine – Boston Harbor Cruises’ high speed catamaran, Salacia, is the Boston-area’s unofficial getaway driver for weekend escapes to Cape Cod; giving passengers an opportunity to trade the city’s summer heat for the Cape’s refreshing sea breezes in just 90 minutes. Carrying up to 600 passengers and traveling up to 40 knots (45 mph), it’s the largest and fastest passenger catamaran of its kind in the country.
Oil & Gas – Where trucks, heavy equipment transporters and company-owned buses emblazoned with well-known names such as Surgutneftegas, Rosneft or Gazpromneft rumble past, then you can be sure one thing is not very far away — the substance that keeps today’s world on the move — oil. Exploration service providers, such as Russia’s Packer Service, are ensuring that it can be extracted efficiently. The most important machines to get the job done are fracking pumps, driven by robust, heavy-duty MTU engines.
Marine Defense – Only constant vigilance and deep resources can slow the steady influx of illegal drugs into the United States. The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) is a powerful force in this neverending fight. Its mission is to serve and protect the United States’ maritime borders from all threats, including those posed by drug trafficking organizations.
Oil & Gas – Unit Drilling Company uses 18 MTU Series 4000 generator sets to power its operations at the Granite Wash Oil Field in Oklahoma. By utilizing new drilling and hydrofracturing techniques, the company is helping drive America’s new energy boom.
Marine Defense – The four frigates “Almirante Padilla”, “Caldas”, “Antioquia” and “Independiente” first went into service with the Colombian Navy at the beginning of the 1980s. Each of the vessels was powered by four of MTU’s proven Series 1163 engines. Today, almost 30 years later, the ships are still operating successfully and the Navy plans to keep them in service. As part of a comprehen- sive program of modernization, the frigates have been fitted with new main propulsion units, new on-board power systems and a new monitoring and control system, all specifically tailored by MTU for the vessels’ future missions.
Agricultural and Forestry – When Oxbo set out to upgrade the engine in its pea harvesters, it had high standards for torque, fuel economy and reliability. The MTU Series 460 passed the test with flying colors. Running constantly in a wide range of conditions, the Oxbo 6160M Pea Harvester is reaping impressive yields — including more revenue.
