Portumna Marine wins Naval Defence contract

Portumna Marine has won a contract to overhaul five 7.2m and 8m launch RIBs.

5th November 2012

We are delighted to have been awarded the contract to completely overhaul and re-design five launch RIBs for the Naval Defence Forces.


We have designed a new console, watertight for the harsh conditions at sea, fully loaded with the latest technology in military electronics and fully replacable with a new unit within three minutes.


We designed the new A-Frame to house and operate a self righting system, navigation lights, beacon, vhf aerial and flare box.

A big issue with the previous A-Frame was the amount of damage caused to the lights, beacon and aerials in a rough sea.  This has been solved by positioning them inside the new frame rather than on top.
