Technical Tour of Incat Tasmania Shipyard

Date: Wednesday 25 September

Coach departure from Hotel Grand Chancellor

The organising committee of the 30th ITTC invite delegates to a Technical Tour of Incat Tasmania’s shipyard. You will tour the various aspects of the shipyard from the area where aluminium is cut and prepared for construction, to the pre-fabrication area where vessel modules are constructed, through to the main assembly hall. The tour of the shipyard will include the 130 metre Electric wave-piercing catamaran being built for South American company Buquebus, destined to be the world’s largest zero-emissions lightweight Ro-Pax ferry. There will also be an opportunity to visit the Tasmanian Fast Ferry Museum which displays the development and history of the early smaller vessels, displays of ship models and materials, through to current day production.

The tour will include a drive to the kunanyi/Mt Wellington summit for stunning views of Hobart and southern Tasmania, and a visit to the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, to see Tasmania’s wombats, echidna, eastern quolls and Tasmanian devils.
