PFG Group is an award-winning, Australian manufacturing business, based in Tasmania, which specialises in the design, development and manufacture of maritime equipment for domestic and global markets. This includes manufacturing a wide range of commercial vessels which are specifically designed for operation in harsh environments, with the rugged Tasmanian coastline and fierce weather conditions providing ideal testing grounds under teh AQUATRUCK brand
Aquatrucks, manufactured with high density polyethylene (HDPE), offers:
-Unparalleled stability and rideability. HDPE absorbs vibration, is quiet and resists temperature transfer, assisting in the management of operator fatigue.
-HDPE is also positively buoyant, meaning the flotation characteristics provide shallow drafts and stable platforms, which is ideal for search and rescue operations where it may be necessary to pull people onto the vessel.
-Reduced ongoing costs. HDPE doesn't suffer from electrolysis or corrosion, resists fouling and has high levels of UV protection, which reduces maintenance requirements and improves both availability and reliability. The lack of corrosion also ensures the vessel holds its strength over multiple years
-Exceptional manoeuvrability. The shallow draft, due to the use of HDPE, allows the vessels to sit very flat, without the tendency to drift or skim, no matter what the water conditions. The Aquatruck also has the advantage of lasting four times longer than its alloy competitors, due to its sound design and structural integrity. Our oldest vessel is 25 years old and still in full commercial survey!
Initially designed for military, water police, fast response rescues and more, the potential applications are enormous
