CTruk to Unveil THOR at DSEI Exhibition in London, UK

CTruk will be unveiling THOR, Twin Hulled Offshore Raider, at the DSEI exhibition in London from 10-13 September 2013. THOR will be starring in the waterborne demonstration adjacent to the ExCel venue and will be proving its capabilities as a fast, stable and multi-role force protection craft.

Designed by CTruk, THOR incorporates a range of high-tech equipment provided by the CTruk CAP consortium (see notes for detail). The companies that form CTruk CAP have joined forces to compete in a market dominated by larger corporations.

The result of this teamwork is THOR: a multi-role, reconfigurable and affordable vessel with a range of applications from force protection to disaster relief. THOR has a lightweight composite construction, which gives excellent fuel efficiency, thereby saving on operating costs and maximising time on task. With a top speed in excess of 40 knots, THOR is fast and suitable for sustained operations over long distances and time periods. It can be rapidly deployed via a C17 or A400M and also from a CTruk 50T mother ship.

Alastair Stangroom, Director of Operations for CTruk’s Military and Security Division, commented:

“We are all extremely excited about the launch of THOR. Not only is it an outstanding and ingenious design, but the combined creative excellence of the CTruk CAP consortium has delivered a vessel that ticks all the boxes in terms of multi-role, high performance and cost efficiency.”
