Kewatec Work 1620 ORV

Kewatec Work 1620 is a high-capacity catamaran designed for oil recovery. Its task is to take and distribute oil booms and to carry fire extinguishing equipment and, if necessary, crew to the accident site. It can also be used for evacuation tasks in fires and marine accidents.

The small draft of the Work 1620 allow access to shallow beaches. You can also tilt up the two powerful gasoline outboard engines. Without cargo the boat is fast and can be used in moderate seas near the coast.

Work 1620 is equipped with a crane that is powered by a separate hydraulic machine. The same hydraulic machine uses the wide hydraulic bow door and capstan. The equipment also includes a movable oil boom that can be used either on the bow or the stern.

Spacious, but protected from the sides, the aft level is on the same level with the deck and a safe place to work. For increased safety there are removable handrails at the bow ramp. The deck is made of anti-slip aluminum and has plenty of attachment points for the cargo. In addition to the standard deck lighting, the boat has a liftable mast with powerful spotlights for safe working even in the dark.

Work 1620 is designed to carry up to 10 people. Six of them have room in the heated and ventilated wheelhouse. The operator and the map reader can use suspension seats, and four other passengers sit on a padded backseat.
