Fire and Rescue Vessel


The London Fire & Civil Defence Authority are replacing the 15-year-old fireboat, the London Phoenix, with two new rapid response boats. Alnmaritec division of the Alnmarin Group was chosen from a range of companies who had submitted designs, to DESIGN and BUILD the new fireboats with delivery in the late spring of 1999. The first boat has just been launched.

The rapid response boats are powered by twin diesel engines and jet drives enabling them to reach 30 knots as opposed to a top speed of 12 knots by the Phoenix. A fire pump will be able to deliver water at 1800 litres per minute and on-board radios will allow marine and inter-emergency communications.
The all-welded 14.1m aluminium-alloy vessels were designed specifically around the requirements of the operators, with a low freeboard and shallow draught for ease of operations in the estuaries and upper reaches of the river Thames. The vessels are fitted with an extending bow ramp to allow easy access to water level for recovery from overboard.

The monohull form is of a design specific to Alnmaritec. This hull formation maximises the hull planing area for optimum speed coupled to low wash. The new Fireboat is designed, built and surveyed to conform with Lloyds Register Small Boat Rules and Category 6 of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency code of practice for the Safety of Small Workboats and Pilots Boats.
