HamiltonJet has recently signed a multi-year, multi-boat project to supply jets to the Taiwan Coast Guard for new coastal patrol vessels.

To mark the new relationship a delegation from Taiwan consisting of Coast Guard, shipyard, and other notable guests visited HamiltonJet recently in Christchurch.

The party was treated to a tour of the Christchurch facilities by Operations Manager Rob Carrol before lunch was held at which a Memorandum of Understanding was signed by the Deputy Director of the Taiwan Coast Guard, the Vice Chairman of Jong Shyn Shipyard and Vincent Mortimer, CFO for HamiltonJet.

Other guests at the ceremony included Imogene Lomax and Lisa Thompson from New Zealand Trade & Enterprise, Christchurch City Councillor Jimmy Chen, GM of the Canterbury Chamber of Commerce Micheala Blacklock, and NZ Marine CEO Peter Busfield.

As part of their visit, guests were able to board a local NZ Coastguard vessel "blue ARROW Rescue" and were given a demonstration of the Twin HJ322 waterjets with blue ARROW controls and JETanchor.

After a highspeed ride around the Lyttleton harbour, while where the crew demonstrated bucket assisted turns, emergency crash-stops and Virtual Anchoring off a buoy, the visitors were given the opportunity to drive the boat and operate in slow speed manoeuvres using the blue ARROW Mouseboat and JETanchor.
