A fresh approach to design and build
CTruk is a designer and builder of multi-purpose composite marine craft, with proven ability as offshore wind farm support vessels and numerous applications in the commercial, survey & research and security sectors.
We pride ourselves on our fresh and innovative approach to design and build. In addition to several design patents, our Essex-based shipyard uses a cutting-edge vacuum infusion process. This enables us to create robust composite vessels of the highest calibre, with 40% weight savings and extraordinary fuel-efficiency.
Proven technology and staunch reliability
Safety comes first on every project. This is evident in our use of Rolls-Royce water jets, integrated systems redundancy and intuitive control for singlehanded man-overboard recovery. With ISO 9001 operating procedures, allied to the cleanliness of resin infusion, our build processes are as safe and efficient as our finished vessels.
Versatility through interchangeable pods
We continually strive to improve our designs, build processes and systems. Our use of vacuum infusion creates industry-leading laminates; and our patented modular pods represent a uniquely effective solution. Our clients can change a vessel’s functionality in just a few hours, bringing unmatched versatility of application to the offshore wind farm sector.
Shorter production times and higher speeds
CTruk’s modular construction process, developed and implemented at our Essex shipyard, enables faster production of boats and equipment. We also put major emphasis on smart materials and new technology to create stronger, lighter, more hydrodynamic hulls with lower power demands, reduced fuel costs and higher speeds at sea.
Greater efficiency through reduced weight
Our composite craft are famously tough – but the fact that our build processes save 40% on weight means they also burn far less fuel than aluminium vessels of a similar size. With efficient modular construction allied to the innate multi-tasking capacity of every vessel, a CTruk craft is the most versatile and cost-effective solution available.
