Philippine Fleet Builds for Reliability


Cummins Vessel Reference #667

The M/T Jewel Faith nearing completion.

Earlier this year, Swordfish Marine of the Philippines, launched a new coastal tanker the M/T Jewel Faith. The new vessel is 69 meters in length with a 12.8-meter beam and a 2.8-meter draft.

Looking forward over the main deck of the tanker.

To assure reliable propulsion on a vessel carrying petroleum products the owners chose a pair of dependable six cylinder Cummins KTA19-M3 engines. Delivering a total of 1200 hp through ZFW650 gears with 5:1 reduction to a pair of 1574 m/m propellers, they give the tanker a speed of ten knots.

The Jewel Faith was built by and launched from the Josefa Slipways in Navotas City.
