Texas Crewboats in the US is due to take delivery of the third in a series of newbuilds this September.
The newbuild programme saw Miss Claire delivered in 2006, followed by the 160ft Greater Scott, delivered in early 2008, and finally Sea Angel, to be delivered this September by Neuville Boatworks.
The first two of these three vessels are powered by four Cummins KTA38 M2 diesels generating 5,400hp total for each boat. Sea Angel will be powered by four of the new Tier 2 certified Cummins QSK38 M generating the same horsepower at 1,900rpm.
These are the first of the 38 litre engines for Texas Crewboats but three of the company’s other vessels are each powered by a quad of Cummins KTA19 giving each of them 2,800hp.
In addition to their main engines, Texas Crewboats' vessels also have a raft of Cummins powered gensets.
