CTruk will unveil THOR, Twin Hulled Offshore Raider, at the DSEI exhibition in London from September 10-13, 2013. THOR will be starring in the waterborne demonstration adjacent to the ExCel venue and will be proving its capabilities as a fast, stable and multi-role force protection craft.

Designed by CTruk, THOR incorporates a range of high-tech equipment provided by the CTruk CAP consortium (see notes for detail). The companies that form CTruk CAP have joined forces to compete in a market dominated by larger corporations.

According to CTruk, The result of this teamwork is THOR: a multi-role, reconfigurable and affordable vessel with a range of applications from force protection to disaster relief. THOR has a lightweight composite construction, which gives excellent fuel efficiency, thereby saving on operating costs and maximizing time on task. With a top speed in excess of 40 knots, THOR is fast and suitable for sustained operations over long distances and time periods, the company said, and it can be rapidly deployed via a C17 or A400M and also from a CTruk 50T mother ship.
