Quinquari Marine win the contract to supply Welsh Police Force ‘Dyfed Powys Police’ with a New 10m RIB
The boat will be used by officers from the Marine Section, assisted by specially-trained fire arm officers from across the Force.
The craft is a Humber Offshore 10m RIB and will be powered by the latest Evinrude ETEC G2 250hp Outboards. These outboards are one of the most fuel efficient outboards an the market, which will reduce the Force’s fuel usage and carbon footprint. The RIB will be fitted out with the latest Raymarine navigational package.
The Marine Section is based at Neyland Marine and is responsible for policing the waterways of the Port of Milford Haven and the Pembrokeshire Coastline.
The work carried out by the section is specialised and hugely diverse, and includes crime prevention patrols, responding to incidents on the water, searching for missing people, body recovery and boarding vessels with fisheries and ports officers.
Rhys Price, Director at Quinquari Marine, said: ”When we became aware that Dyfed Powys Police were interested in purchasing a new RIB, we recognised that this was an opportunity not to be missed. We are looking forward to seeing the new RIB on the water in the Spring of 2017”.
