What makes TCV importent for operators?

vessel fuel comparisonsHigh speed vessel operators have been absorbing rising fuel costs and trying to meet ever more stringent emissions standards. Slipstream TCVs can halve these costs and emissions, while also offering double the work capacity (60 + knot vs. 30 knot service speeds). For example, a 200 passenger TCV could do the work of a 400 passenger 30 knot conventional catamaran ferry, with the crew and maintenance costs of a 200 passenger vessel and a far lower capital cost. This is achieved while providing the much reduced fuel cost mentioned above.

Slipstream TCV's future

tcvs 4Slipstream TCVs can become the high speed vessel of choice in many markets; as passenger ferries and high value cargo craft, as northern exploration and supply craft, as river craft where sandbanks or marshes exist, as off-shore support craft, as ambulance ships and in defense applications, such as mine sweepers/mine layers, very high speed long-range landing craft or troop and equipment carriers, and as light, long range VTOL/STOL aircraft carriers or as unmanned surface vessels/vehicles.
