2018 Highlight!

2018 brought some interesting projects in for Q-SPD, the main highlight being the delivery of 3 CMN-DV15 Interceptor patrol vessels built with twin Q-SPD Surface Drives Systems in Abu Dhabi.

The DV15 Interceptors are high performance craft manufactured from advanced composite materials. Powered by twin Caterpillar C12 705-HP engines for a top speed of 52-56 knots (depending on version and payload). The DV15 has become a popular model for governments around the world as high-speed patrol vessels used for sea policing and maritime security. They are based on deep vee planning hull with hard chines.

Q-SPD’s customer wanted a reliable solution which needed to be user-friendly, with easy access to inboard componentry when routine maintenance was required.

Q-SPD Surface Drives are the only fixed drives able to deliver performance across the range as well as being extremely low maintenance and easy to use. The main drive body is e-glass and carbon-fibre composite moulded in one piece making it extremely light weight.

Q-SPD supplied the complete propulsion driveline system along with the full steering package and end to end exhaust systems.

Q-SPD supplied:

  • QSD130 Surface Drives
  • 5 blade propellers
  • Full power steering solution
  • Drive shafts
  • Complete exhaust systems including custom risers & mixers (designed in house)
