CTruk to unveil THOR at the DSEI exhibition in London from 10-13 September 2013.
THOR – Twin Hulled Offshore Raider:
CTruk’s new multi-role force protection craft
 
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. 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.”
     
THOR is the brain-child of CTruk’s Military and Security team, who between them have amassed approximately 200 years of military experience, skills and knowledge. Realising that new designs must be right first time, the company has established a Military Design Advisory Panel (MDAP), which acts as an advisory body, steering design to ensure that vessels are fit for task.
THOR is currently fitted with Saab's Trackfire RWS 50 cal and 7.62.

     
CTruk is a leading designer and builder of multi-purpose composite marine craft that have a proven track record as offshore wind support vessels as well as numerous applications in the military and security, disaster relief and commercial sectors.
