AIRBOATS / WORKBOATS

 

TURBINE POWERED AIRBOATS AND WORKBOATS

MTT has manufactured turbine-powered airboats and workboats for many years. Our large Airboats and Workboats are designed to house heavy equipment such as cranes, drills, heavy fire fighting equipment, workover machinery, telephone poles and cradles for pipeline material. Small Airboats can be used for lighter duty work such as for emergency response, rescue, and lighter fire fighting.

Airboats and workboats both share the same type of propulsion system by virtue of one or more turbines driving a propeller. All boats are infinitely customizeable to accommodate the duty mission.

 

THE SUPER TURBINE AIRBOAT

MTT’s 15x27′ Super Turbine Airboat is 3,000 HP with an 8 ton payload. It has 10,000 lbs. thrust to operate on land and water. It is designed to adapt to any configuration such as for utility work, pipeline, wireline, coiled tubing, EMS, P&A, well remediation and frac pumps. This airboat is the solution for sensitive marshlands. The airboat is scalable to 8,000 HP and 25,000 lbs. thrust.

MTT 16 x 45′ Twin Turbine Super Airboat.  Twin 1,500 HP T-53 Honeywell turbine engines on diesel fuel with 10 foot diameter / 5 blade carbon fiber props.  Multi-fuel capable which includes lower volatility fuels such as No. 2 diesel and kerosene.  Dry weight: 17,660 lbs.  Wet weight with fuel: 22,000 lbs.  Single point lifting harness. In water the deck load capacity is 80,000 lbs.   The boat is capable of transporting 12,000 lbs. of payload over dry ground or green marsh with no environmental impact.  In marsh it is variable but not limited to 12,000 lbs.  Welded aluminum hull.  Completely decked over and bulk-headed.  Below deck fuel tanks at 620 gallons.  Under deck equipment storage with transport space.  The vessel significantly lowers the environmental impact, decreases permitting times, provides faster transport capabilities and speeds project completion timeframe.  The boat displaces about 10 inches at the stern with fuel.  In the video we were able to run dry land and green marsh with 12,000 lbs. of payload on the deck.
