FSD-Ferretti Security & Defence, Ferretti Group’s division dedicated to Defence and Security, participates for the first time at DSA - Defense Services Asia. The event will take place from 16th to 19th April 2018 in Kuala Lumpur, at the newly built Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC).
The biennial exhibition Defense Services Asia, one of the most important events of the Asiatic region for the world of Defense and Security, is an inter-force exhibition where some of the world’s most sophisticated technologies, hardware and electronic warfare in Land, Air and Sea Defence are showcased. DSA 2018 will be hosted, supported and co-organised by the Ministry of Defence, the Malaysian Armed Forces and the Royal Malaysia Police.
At DSA, FSD will introduce to the Southeast Asian market the FSD195 (of which 2 units have already been produced), the FSD150 CB (Combat Boat) and the FSD 350 models.
FSD195, "Fast Patrol Vessel" by Ferretti Security and Defense, is a 20-meters long boat, with high performance features, about 37 tons weight, a maximum speed in excess of 50 knots and an autonomy range of over 500 miles. It is equipped with two 1900 hp engines and can be fitted with a 12.7 mm LRCWS machine gun, as well as other weapon systems. FSD195 has also been tested with great success in Italian waters as a “chase boat” (bullet proofed tender), for agile and reliable civil securityusages.
FSD150 CB is a 16.2 meters long boat and just over 22 tons, propelled by 2 engines of 800 hp each, able to easily overcome the 45 knots embarking 3 crew members and up to 22 operators.
The FSD350 patrol boat, 35 meters long and weighing 125 tons, is among the most impressive FSD platforms. Equipped with two 3700 hp engines that operate the Rolls-Royce KaMeWa water jet, it is designed to exceed 45 knots and achieve the exceptional top speed of 55 knots in the CODAG (Combined Diesel And Gas) version.
The FSD range consists of high performance boats in terms of speed and strength, equipped with technologically advanced SDC (Combat Systems) solutions. The naval platforms that will be presented at the DSA are all made of hybrid composite (glass-carbon) hulls. Moreover, thanks to the know-how and production capabilities of the Ferretti Group, they are configurable to meet the needs of the various geographical areas and of any operating scenarios.
Participating at DSA 2018, Ferretti Security & Defence gives continuity to the presence on the stage of the great international events taking advantage of unique networking opportunities and promoting the Group's know-how in the design and construction of naval vehicles responsible for patrolling and controlling international and territorial waters.
FSD-Ferretti Security & Defence is represented at DSA 2018 by Director, Giuliano Felten and Head of Operations, Andrea Ameli.
