Kewatec Passenger 2200
Kewatec Passenger 2200 is a fast passenger ship with two diesel engines and RV gearboxes designed for the Swedish archipelago (category SE-E).
When designing the vessel, the maximum passenger capacity was not the feature that was pursued. The focus has been on comfortable and safe spaces. The Passenger 2200’s salon seats 64 passengers comfortable around the tables. There are also seating on the sun deck. If necessary, the boat can be designed to meet the needs of larger passenger capacity.
As an unobstructed space, the Passenger 2200 Salon is also accessible for the disabled. The boat is reached from a hydraulically movable bow ramp, and there is enough space for moving with the wheelchair in entire cabin area, including an accessible toilet. There is also a shower within the toilet. There are two separate places for passengers with wheelchairs at the front of the cabin.
The passenger can leave the bags in the storage area at the front of the cabin. Opposite of the storage area, there is a booth that makes it possible to serve snacks and drinks to passengers.
When designing the Passenger 2200, the crew has been considered as well as the passengers. The wheelhouse has excellent visibility, which makes it especially easy to go ashore. Cameras can be used to follow events at the back deck and the engine room. There are two rooms next to the wheelhouse, on the same level as the sun deck, which can be fit up for a crew member cabins.
Passenger exchange and daily maintenance – filling up fuel tanks and water tank, draining the septic tank – are handled through the bow gate.
During the cold seasons, the Passenger 2200 remains warm inside, with a separate heating boiler and waste heat that is recovered from the engines. In addition, the engine room can be heated with electric heaters.
The need to fill the water tank is reduced by the watermaker installed in the boat. In addition to the motors’ own chargers and the ground-based power supply, electricity is supplied by a separate 230-volt diesel generator.
Fire safety is provided by a fixed fire extinguishing system in engine room and tank room. Also, a fire pump and two fire hydrants with a hose in the cabin and deck area.
