Cummins has strengthened its marine sales team in Western
Australia with two new appointments.
Peter Brookes and Troy Drysdale are the new sales executives,
both having technical backgrounds.
Brookes joined Cummins in 1995 as a diesel technician and
worked in the truck and engine bays as well as in field service. In
1999 he was appointed application engineer for Western
Australia and Northern Territory.
In this role he supported the installation process and
commissioning of numerous types of vessels, which included
work with Strategic Marine in Singapore and Vietnam.
Drysdale began his apprenticeship as a diesel technician with
Alcoa in 1990 and swung spanners for around 12 years before
moving into sales.
He joined Cummins five years ago as a sales executive,
specialising in the industrial and automotive fields.
Both Peter Brookes and Troy Drysdale are based at Cummins
in Perth and can be contacted on (08) 9475 8777.

Waterjet manufacturer HamiltonJet has had considerable
commercial success with its new HT series since the first
model was introduced less than two years ago, with 60 units
being sold to date.
So far, 18 HT1000s have been delivered to South Korea
for Coast Guard Patrol boats, with a further ten jets scheduled
for delivery this financial year. A large patrol boat being
constructed in the USA at present also utilises twin HT1000
jets. Seven twin shipsets of HT810s have been ordered
for patrol boat projects in Taiwan, with the first of these
recently exceeding expectations at sea trial. Already there are
orders for 16 HT900s for four fast supply vessels being
constructed in the USA.
HamiltonJet's Global Sales and Marketing Manager Mike
Shearer says, "It is very pleasing to see the vast amount of
in-house dedicated research and development effort paying
dividends in the market with improved hydrodynamic design,
maximised manoeuvrability and reduced lifecycle costs all being
significant factors in the acceptance of the HT range."
HamiltonJet will be exhibiting at the following shows in the
Ausmarine, Perth Australia, November 23 to 25, stand 85 & 86;
International Workboat Show, New Orleans USA, December
1 to 3, booth 3039 with twin HT900s on display.

The changing face of Australian shipbuilding
The return of Australia's only specialised commercial
maritime trade exhibition reflects major changes to the
nation's shipbuilding industry.
"When last presented in Perth in 2003, the AUSMARINE
exhibition was dominated by the local shipbuilding industry,
particularly builders of fast ferries, fishing and patrol boats,"
explained organiser Kishore Navani.
"There were no foreign domiciled shipbuilders at all. This time,
however, more than half the shipbuilder exhibitors are foreign
domiciled. In addition three of the leading Australian based
shipbuilder exhibitors, Austal, Harwood Marine and Strategic
Marine have extensive operations overseas. The industry has
changed drastically in seven years.
"This can be explained partially by Australia's governments'
dramatic near extermination of the local fishing industry; by the
near saturation of the global fast ferry market; and, finally, by
the rapid growth in the offshore service sector. The latter
requiring steel vessels that are scarcely built in Australia now,"
Mr Navani concluded.
Thus, AUSMARINE 2010 will be a much more international
event than its predecessors. A "Who's Who" of the Australian and
the world's top work boat builders are showing their wares. They
are supported by a number of the best known naval architects;
engine and propulsion system manufacturers; and, many other top
class suppliers to the Australian work boat industry.
AUSMARINE will be enhanced by a pair of first rate
Conferences which will be presented on Tuesday, November 23
and Wednesday, November 24. There will also be a series of
detailed Product Presentation Seminars. Access to all of these is
free of charge.
