The newly built firefighting vessel Strażak-28 has just left the hall of Remontowa Shipbuilding SA. Later this year it will join the fleet of vessels at Szczecin and Świnoujście Seaports Authority SA. In the nearest future, the hull of the vessel will be assembled with the superstructure.
The fire-fighting vessel Strażak-28 will be able to carry out emergency towing in the event of a threat to life and property and to sail on icy waters. The vessel will be manoeuvrable and fast, which will be ensured by two azimuth thrusters. The vessel will be manned by four ship’s crew and four firemen from the Port Fire Brigade.
Strażak-28 will measure 29.2m in length and 10.47m in width. Its construction draught is 3.45 m. It will develop a maximum speed of up to 12.00 knots. Its bollard pull is 45 tonnes. It will be equipped with three water and foam monitors of 1350 m3/h each and two FiFi pumps of 2700 m3/h each.
The vessel will ensure fire safety in the seaports of Szczecin, Police and Świnoujście and assistance to ships carrying dangerous cargo (the vessel will be adapted, among other things, to fight fires on LNG tankers).
