Norsafe AS reported exceptional bollard pull and low speed thrust using twin UltraJet 305HT waterjets coupled to twin Yanmar 340 bhp 6LYA-STP engines. The survey boat Munin is designed and tested according to the "Nordic boat standard" for workboats. During sea trials a speed of 30 knots with a displacement of 8 tonnes was comfortably achieved and a bollard pull of 2.8 tonne was recorded. According to Norsafe, the workboat has excellent reliability, maneuverability, and sea keeping abilities, making it suitable as a work platform for maintenance on seismic cables. In addition, Munin is designed to operate away from the Mother Ship for extended periods, with a sufficient range for long time operation. The boat is equipped with a spacious wheelhouse with seating for a crew of four.
