Kvichak Marine Delivers

Wednesday, July 20, 2005
Kvichak Marine recently delivered a 40-ft. Fast Response fireboat to the Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACFD). Designed by Jensen Maritime Consultants of Seattle, the fireboat has a beam of 13.5 ft. and is powered by twin Caterpillar 3126B engines coupled to Twin Disc MG-5075A gears, which provide a speed of ~27 knots. To optimize vessel control and firefighting capacity, LACFD chose a Cummins 6BTA5.9-M3 dedicated fire pump engine, directly coupled to a Hale 80-FC 2400 GPM pump. A Stang fire monitor provides 1000 gpm of water flow and the fireboat has a 50-gallon AR firefighting foam system. "Our mission is to protect and ensure the safety of the Marina del Ray community," said Chief Barry Nugent. "This new vessel is a multi-mission platform and provides our community with state-of-the-art equipment for fire fighting, emergency search and rescue, water recovery operations, emergency medical service and vessel assistance."
