Development of High-Speed Sealift Ships


With the end of the Cold War the United States military is left with many new challenges and requirements. One of the most critical is sealift. Current and future sealift requirements of the Department of Defense are making fast sealift ships a critical element of U.S. national security. For the past several years, Kvaerner Masa Marine (KMM), in cooperation with Kvaerner Masa-Yards Technology and other industry partners, has developed several high-speed vessel concepts for both military and commercial applications.

Examples of KMM’s designs include:
  • High speed monohulls capable of 35 knots in both RoRo and container configurations.
  • Very High Speed Sealift Trimaran (VHSST) concept designs with 40, 50, and 60 knot variations.

KMM recently presented a paper titled "Development of High Speed Sealift Ships" at the High-Speed Vessels Future Developments Conference in Victoria, Canada. The paper presents a background of the history and requirements of the United States Military Sealift and provides an insight into the development of KMM’s high speed sealift ship designs by briefly outlining the designs’ technological and operational concepts that will meet the US Military Sealift requirements for today and tomorrow.
