Since the boat construction required a number of different core types, as well as special processing finish, the team decided to use advanced DIAB cores. All the materials for the main components, such as hull, deck and cabin, were made with infusion technique. With a high ratio of glass fiber to resin, this procedure resulted in a light, yet extremely strong structure.
The versatile boats were built according to the classification system of the Indian Register of Shipping (IRS). Providing third-party technical inspection and certification services for different kinds of vessels and structures, the IRS is an internationally recognized, independent society for ship classification. As this was the first time such advanced vessels were built according to these rules and regulations, the joint team of CCG, Team One and Solas had to work closely with the IRS to have the materials and design continuously approved.
Meeting the tough IRS requirements as well as the sometimes demanding conditions of the Indian coastline, the delivered vessels have excellent sea-keeping and dynamic stability capability even at high speed, making them the perfect tools for the SPB.
