Within the scope of the contract made with the Turkish General Directorate of Security, Izmir Shipyard completed the construction of three IZ 1500 AL – High Speed Aluminum Marine Police Patrol Boats - and delivered successfully in Izmir, Turkey.
Turkey’s First Commercial IPS Propulsion System Applied!
Under the Turkish Lloyd Classification, IZ 1500 AL Marine Police Patrol Boats made of 5083 marine aluminum material with a length of 14.6 meters can reach up to a speed of 42 knots per hour. Thanks to its special forward propulsion system “Volvo Penta IPS 700 Pod Drive”, the boats ensure stability, durability and excellent maneuverability at high speed.
With its Volvo Penta quality, IPS (Pod) propulsion system, which has proven itself in the global seas, has been integrated with a commercial boat for the first time in Turkey by Izmir Shipyard. Autopilot and cruise control systems have been successfully integrated with the IPS system, which can be controlled with the joy-stick system, allowing the boat to rotate around its axis and go sideways and crosswise.
The boats are also equipped with “Aselsan Martı” gyroscopic thermal vision system and can be locked to a target 5 km away with 4x optical zoom capacity. Equipped with state-of-the-art “Garmin” navigation and electronic control systems along with fully automated “Humphree” trim and list optimization systems, IZ 1500 ALs are designed to perform inspection, surveillance and high speed patrol tasks in line with all requirements of law enforcement authorities in the most demanding sea conditions.
