Drains, pipes and fittings for Australian patrol boat project

Marine Plant Systems, BLÜCHER's marine agent for Australia and New Zealand, has won the order to supply BLÜCHER stainless steel marine drains, pipes and fittings for the Australian shipyard Austal.

Austal has chosen to use BLÜCHER for eight patrol boats to be supplied to the Australian Border and Customs Service. The patrol boats will have a length of 57.8 metres and a capacity of 18 crew. With a range of 4,000 nm, the ships will play an important role in protecting Australia's borders.

The ships will be built at Austal's shipyard in Henderson, Western Australia. Construction of the first vessel was started in February 2012, with all eight patrol boats due to be delivered between March 2013 and August 2015.
