At the recent Seawork Show the new Blyth Workcat was on display on the pontoons, where she was visited by those in the marine industry throughout the show.
The 15m Survey Boat called “Egidora” has been built for Kiel University in Germany. The design of the catamaran is to work most efficiently at slow speeds which is essential for effective surveying. Powered by Iveco 550hp engines, Egidora can reach 22 knots when required.
The stern gear designed and manufactured by Clements Engineering provides all the complete propulsion solution from the gear box to the propeller. The boat was built to German Flag standard and therefore the propulsion equipment also had to adhere to these quality standards.
Clements Engineering Sales Manager, Michael Major commented, “We have worked with Blyth Workcats on many projects over the years, it’s always good to see a project we have worked on, on display at such a high-profile event.”
