Vessel Design 

TRITON is built along warship lines and to DNV-GL Classification Society high speed craft design. The hull and superstructure are made of high tensile steel. With a length overall of 98 metres, a beam of 22 metres and a maximum draft of 5.5 metres, the ship is characterized by a long, cigar shaped centre hull and smaller, outer hulls either side mid ships. The three hulls are topped with a large main weather deck, providing space both forward and aft of the main superstructure that is capable of stowing up to six twenty foot containers or equivalent for enhanced mission support.

Propulsion

The main propulsion is diesel electric using two MTU diesel generators, each delivering 2080 Kw, to provide power through two main switchboards to a single electric motor and single shaft and a composite fixed propeller. With both main diesel generators operating, the ship can achieve a speed in excess of 16 knots (logged at 22knots post docking) which will consume 15 tonne of diesel fuel per day. At an economical speed of 11.5 knots, using one main engine, the ship will consume 7.5 tonnes per day of marine diesel fuel. This gives the ship a range in excess of 9000nm at economical speed with 10% fuel remaining. With just the harbour diesel generator operating, the ship can point and propel itself at 2-3 knots using small thrusters mounted on each side hull, as well as provide all hotel services whilst consuming just over 1.5 -2.0 tonne of fuel per day. The ship also has a bow thruster for ease of manoeuvring alongside.

Internal Layout

Internally, the high standard of watertight integrity of the ship is evidenced by the level of compartmentalisation, which is similar to a warship. There is cabin accommodation for up to 45 persons within the superstructure and outer hulls and austere accommodation for up to 100 persons in the forward hold compartment. There are standard accommodation and recreation facilities on board and mission specific compartments, including a lockable secure communications room and a combined armoury and magazine. The fridges and food stores have sufficient capacity to sustain 45 persons for more than 30 days continuously at sea and 100 persons in austere accommodation for up to 10 days (dry stored provisions only).

Ship Control

The automated main engine room, auxiliary machinery spaces, electrical switchboard rooms and engineering workshop are all well laid out, spacious and alarmed as appropriate. The bridge spans the breadth of the ship and has almost a 360 degree field of view, seen through large windows. The bridge is equipped with the controls, sensors and navigation and communications equipment expected of a modern ocean going patrol vessel.
