Ultra Dynamics (UltraJet) in partnership with South Boats and Rotec Hydraulics have  announced the introduction of the UltraJet JetMaster 2 DNV class-approved electronic control system for South Boats Windfarm Support vessels (WFSV).

Ultra Dynamics (UltraJet) and South Boats, together with Rotec Hydraulics have designed and manufactured to a specification agreed between the three parties the New UltraJet JetMaster 2 – a CANbus 2 in 1 electronic control system to meet WFSV customers’ specific vessel control requirements.

JetMaster 2 can be configured to meet any service provider’s exact control requirements. Controlling twin UltraJet waterjets, engines and gearboxes electronically and synchronously - at a flick of a switch the operator can move between the primary and secondary system– the system then not in use becomes the complete redundancy backup system (a requirement for DNV Class approval).

The specification requirements called for JetMaster 2 to be robust, reliable and adaptable, as well as being highly responsive with excellent manoeuvrability. This challenge was met by Rotec Hydraulics expertise and Parker Hannifin’s Iqan modular electronic control equipment and software.
