Abu Dhabi – ADNEC, February 15th 2019 – FSD-Ferretti Security and Defence, Ferretti Group’s division dedicated to Defense and Security, will participate in the fourteenth edition of the International Defense Exhibition & Conference IDEX 2019, the most important naval exhibition in the Middle East.
FSD continues the promotion of its boats on the international market by presenting in Abu Dhabi the models of FSD195, already produced in 2 units, of FSD350 patrol boat and of the Combat Boat FSD150.
FSD150 Combat Boat is a 16.2 meters long boat weighing 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; propelled by 2 engines of 1200 hp each it can reach a speed over 50 knots.
FSD195, the Fast Patrol Vessel by Ferretti Security & Defence, is a high performance boat.
20-meters long boat and weighing about 36 tons, it can easily exceed 50 knots speed and has 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 with other weapon systems.
The second unit of the FSD195, fully built in glass-carbon hybrid and delivered to a leading North European defense company last July, is enjoying considerable success and giving prestige to the entire FSD-Ferretti Security & Defense division.
FSD195 Combat Boat, the concept which will be exhibited at the fair, can transport up to 24 operators or 6/12 operators equipped with light transport vehicles such as ATVs or motorcycles.
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).
It can also transport an assault rubber boat up to 7.5 meters long on a special ramp positioned at the stern.
FSD boats stand out for their exceptional maneuverability, stability and quietness at speeds close to 100 km/h. These performances, combined with on-board comfort typical of Ferretti Group boats, make FSD products the perfect combination of technology, innovation and the best quality in shipbuilding industry. 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 IDEX are all made of hybrid composite (glass-carbon) hulls. Moreover, thanks to the know-how and production capabilities of Ferretti Group, they are configurable to meet the needs of various geographical areas and of any operating scenarios.
Participating at IDEX 2019, Ferretti Security & Defense further strengthens its position on the stage of the major international events, taking advantage of unique networking opportunities. It will be also the opportunity to promote the Group's know-how in the design and construction of naval vessels for patrolling of international and territorial waters, increasingly requested by the new frontier control needs.
FSD-Ferretti Security & Defence will be represented by the Director, Giuliano Felten, and by the Research & Development Director, Andrea Ameli.
