The Fire Department of Quang Ninh Province (Canh Sat PCCC) in Northern Vietnam ordered their first MetalCraft Marine (MCM) high-performance fireboat – for the island of Tuan Chau, in Ha-Long Bay.
The Firestorm 36 MkII arrived in Vietnam in December of 2020 and was commissioned in late January of 2021 by MCM staff, with technical assistance and translation provided by technicians from the local Vietnamese MCM agent.
The Firestorm 36 MkII pumping system exceeds 3,200gpm at 150psi through her Darley ZSM 3000 pump and Elkhart monitors, and is equipped with an onboard AFFF foam system. With twin Cummins 6.7L 480hp engines and MJP 305HTH waterjets, the vessel can reach 34 knots and with the thrust and acceleration of the MJP jets, the Firestorm 36 MkII can turn on a dime – a 180 turn in her own length at 34 knots.
‘We deliver outstanding quality workmanship in every boat we build and that’s what we provide at a minimum,’ says Bob Clark, Contracts Manager for MetalCraft Marine. ‘With customers all around the globe much care is taken to ensure that our service and maintenance support programme is exceptional and readily available no matter where you’re located.’
In addition to providing maintenance schedules – regular visits from the local factory-trained technician ensure that support and assistance are provided in a timely manner. Should any warranty issues arise, the local technician can engage the support of MCM or any of the in-country vendors of the prime equipment on board the vessel.
With the current global shift in how business has to be done, MetalCraft Marine continues to forge ahead with providing the best quality products, service and customer experiences.
