FERRETTI DELIVERS THE FIRST HYBRID PATROL BOAT TO THE ARMA DEI CARABINIERI
Genoa, October 1, 2020 – The first FSD N800 patrol boat was presented and delivered to the Italian Carabinieri at a ceremony on the opening day of the Genoa International Boat Show. The contract for the sixteen FSD N800 offshore patrol boats was awarded to Ferretti Defence Division.
The FSD N800 is the first of sixteen patrol boats to join the Carabinieri fleet, for deployment on public safety and security operations and to patrol coastal and territorial waters. The new FSD N800 patrol boats have a new generation hybrid propulsion system with zero emissions and total respect for the environment.
The new FSD N800 units have a length of 16.75 meters, a beam of 4.43 meters and a draft of 1.57 meters, with a hull made from composite material consisting of glass fiber and carbon fiber. The new units can be powered by a new concept hybrid Transfluid diesel/electric engine, integrated with the onboard systems by Ferretti’s engineers for zero-emission operation.
The outstanding combination of innovative technology and skillful design significantly reduces consumption and environmental impact, safeguarding the marine ecosystem at the same time as delivering extraordinary performance in terms of speed and handling.
