When Portland, Maine needed an aluminum fire/rescue boat, the city brought on builder A.F. Theriault & Son.  The resulting 65-ft City of Portland features a medical bay identical to land-based ambulances, multiple water cannons and a complete Delta T ventilation system. 

"We offer Delta T Systems as optional equipment, but they have such a great reputation that many architects will incorporate them into their designs," said Theriault & Son VP of production Graham Oakley.  "That was the case with City of Portland."

The new Portland Fire Department fire/rescue boat will serve the city, as well as the surrounding communities on Penobscot Bay.  Powered by twin 454 hp Caterpillar C12 engines, City of Portland duplicates an ambulance compartment so paramedics feel more comfortable on board.  Using a Hale pump and 525 hp Iveco diesel, it has two, manually-operated 1,500 gmp water guns on deck, as well as a remote-controlled 3,000 gpm water cannon above the pilothouse.  The craft also offers Delta T Systems ventilation products, including fans, dampers and moisture eliminators.

"Delta T provides superior engineering services," said Oakley.  "They have an extensive line of innovative products that can be easily customized to fit our ventilation needs and specifications, whether it's a few fans or a large, automatic system."
