ABU DHABI 2nd March, 2015 (WAM) -- Abu Dhabi Ship Building (ADSB) yesterday announced that it has delivered 34 high-speed interceptor boats to the Critical Infrastructure and Coastal Protection Authority (CICPA).

ADSB, along with their joint venture design partner Yonca Onuk, executed the contract for construction and delivery of the boats to CICPA between March 2011 and December 2014.

The MRTP16 High-Speed Interceptor is a 16m advanced composite fast intervention boat that can be used in a variety of quick response missions in the Arabian Gulf. Each vessel was constructed from high-tech composite materials including kevlar and carbon fibre. The 26 ton high-speed interceptors can reach speeds of up to 65 knots and can carry five people.

The boats are powered by two MTU engines propelled by Arneson Surface Drives. The high-speed interceptors are equipped with state of the art communication systems by and each ship is fitted with advanced ammunition.

ADSB specialises in the construction of highly complex small naval boats primarily designed for coastal defence operations against air and surface threats in addition to other tasks like patrolling, coast guard duties, law enforcement, fishery protection, and research and rescue.

Dr. Khaled Al Mazrouei, CEO of ADSB, said, "This delivery continues our proud partnership with CICPA. Supporting this vital organisation to protect the country's territorial waters and maritime facilities from all threats is a great honour." – Emirates News Agency, WAM –
