Amgram have worked with JSF since 1995 to assist in the design, procurement and support of a 15m fisheries patrol boat to operate around Jersey.
Amgram were originally engaged by JSF to write a specification for a 15m aluminium boat to replace the old in service GRP boat. Working with the department a specification was developed to reflect the enhanced role the boat would require, given the extension and importance of the EEZ policing role.
Amgram were then asked to continue their involvement with the project, providing technical service to develop the design after a building yard was selected and provide oversight, seeing the boat through the build and trials process. “Norman Le Brocq” has now been in service since 1996.
In 2009 Amgram were asked to represent JSF during a mid-life refit of NLB and more recently have prepared a report for JSF indicating the future life of the current vessel and likely replacement strategy and costs.
