'Hammerhead' is a 19.95-metre push
boat / multi-purpose work boat built by
MIPEC of Gladstone, Queensland.
This is the latest vessel MIPEC has built
and is hoped to be the first in a series of
these vessels, to be operated by MIPEC
'Hammerhead' is powered by twin
Cummins KTA 19 M3 main engines, each
rated at 480kW at 1,800rpm, coupled to ZF
gearboxes (3.5: 1) and driving fixed pitch
propellers in Veem nozzles.
Auxiliary power is supplied by two
50kVA Genstar air-cooled generators.
When designing 'Hammerhead', the
goal was to create a vessel able to be used
for any type of commercial marine activity,
with a minimum of alterations and
mobilisation down time.
Features such as the clear full-length deck,
bow door, shallow draught, deck loading (10
tonnes per square metre) and allowances
for multiple bolt-on attachments, provide
an ideal work platform for a multitude
Built to NSCV / USL 2B and home ported
in Gladstone, this vessel has a maximum
speed of 13 knots and a cruising speed of 8
knots fully loaded and a powerful bollard
pull of 20 tonnes.
The vessel is equipped with Furuno
navigation systems while deck equipment
was supplied by Rockcrush Group, with
allowances made for extra deck equipment
to be added when required, such as
extra winches for four-point mooring and
Life saving equipment includes a
Surviva liferaft, SOLAS lifejackets, EPIRB
and a rapid-ditch grab bag.
Paints and coatings were supplied
'Hammerhead' has a fuel capacity of
25,000 litres, a freshwater capacity of
19,000 litres and a below deck cargo
storage area of 65 square metres.
Designed, built, painted and fitted
completely in-house by MIPEC, the quality
of build and finish have left all involved
with the project glowing with pride.
