TURBINE POWERED SUPER AIRBOATS

 

MTT SUPER AIRBOAT

MTT has designed the ultimate solution to the ever increasing concern for coastal erosion and damage to the wetlands.  The MTT Super Airboat consists of a proprietary propulsion system using two 1,500 HP marinized gas turbine engines.  This package is designed to offer unparalleled performance using our exclusive 10 ft. diameter propeller system which generates more thrust than any system in production today.  The core technology was developed for Winged Ship Technologies in South Korea as the main propulsion system for their ground breaking WIG (Wing in Ground).  The MTT Super Airboat offers a provision for reverse thrust (something unheard of with conventional airboat technology).

As with all of MTT’s offerings our system is designed to run on various fuels with diesel being the fuel of choice.  The volatility of gasoline makes conventional airboats potential bombs when operating in hazardous areas such as oil spills and fire situations. Each airboat is capable of being rigged with an articulating crane, hydraulic drill, firefighting equipment and rescue configurations as specified by the customer.

Applications for the MTT Super Airboat can be found in inland waterways where oil, gas and utility work has taken place.  For example, in Louisiana where MTT is located, there are countless oil wells that were drilled in our coastal areas when dredging was an acceptable practice.  These same wells are now virtually inaccessible without destroying the environment surrounding them.

Tens of millions of dollars are being spent in the remediation of our coastal wetlands to only be destroyed by marshbuggys which devastate the vegetation that we are relying on to combat erosion.  MTT’s Super Airboat has no environmental impact and leaves no footprint on the areas they are deployed.  They are the future of coastal conservation while providing valuable work such as plug and abandon work, pipeline work, remediation or any use that has sensitivity to marshlands.
