Perkins 4.4TW2GM auxiliary engines have been selected by Majestic Fast Ferry Pte Ltd in Singapore to power the generators on board three new 33m catamaran fast ferries being used for comfortable travel to Batam and Tanjung Pinang Island.
The new series of luxurious ferries, Majestic 7, 8 and 9 have been equipped with 100 kVA generators powered by two 4.4TW2GM Perkins auxiliary engines. Majestic 9, the most recent of the new ferries, was launched in November 2016.
Recently quoted in The Straits Times: “The Ferries are designed by world renowned ship architect [Incat Crowther] and crafted with the highest quality materials and finishes from Europe and USA.” The Perkins 4.4TW2GM is a vertical in-line 4 cylinder direct injection engine, offering excellent fuel economy and ease of maintenance. All Perkins marine engines are supported by a global distributor network.
Perkins propulsion and auxiliary engines are distributed in Singapore through Multico Power Drive Pte Ltd, who were contracted to supply the generators to PT Cahaya Samudra Shipyard in Batam.
In 2016 two Perkins 4.4TWGM auxiliary engines powered the generators on the new Red Jet 6, the fast passenger ferry between Southampton and Cowes, Isle of Wight U.K.
