ProZero

Tuco Marine Group has launched a new ProZero series of fast rescue boats (FRBs), daughter crafts and workboats for the professional market.

A total of 16 low-weight boat models have been designed and developed especially for use in critical and challenging working conditions at sea.

The length of the boats in the series range between 6.5m and 16m and are 2.8m to 4.3m wide.

Tuco managing director Jonas Pedersen said: "The module-based design makes it possible for us to give our customers a product, that can be customised according to their needs and with a relatively short delivery time compared to the market average."

Apart from creating a low-weight, competitive product series, Tuco's ProZero series ensures to remain competitive by focusing on parameters, such as delivery time and customisation according to customer demands.

"It has been important for us to create a series that had range and flexibility, without compromising safety issues."

Although built to meet the DNV classification system standards, the ProZero series can be customised to fit the demands of other classification companies.

The ProZero series is optimised for lifts with davits and cranes, and is capable of travelling long distances, claimed to lower costs, fuel consumption and reduce emission of both CO2 and NOx gases.

Commenting on the product, Tuco Marine Group ApS managing director Jonas Pedersen said: "Our team of designers and engineers has been working intensely on the development."

"It has been a long process, during which it has been important for us to create a series that had range and flexibility, without compromising safety issues and other demands that these types of vessels have to live up to. We are very pleased with the result and happy about the positive feedback from our customers."
