Savannah Pilots pick Delta "T" ventilation systems
For over 140 years, the Savannah Pilots Association has safely guided vessels on the 25-1/2 mile journey from the sea to the Port of Savannah, Georgia.
The association has three boats, six captains and 22 pilots.
On call 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, the Savannah Pilots Association requires heavy-duty equipment that can handle the weather and extreme situations.
Delta "T" Systems ventilation systems are the choice for their engine rooms.
"Dependability is imperative in our line of work," said chief engineer Captain Rich Galuk. "We require a lot of our boats and need rugged equipment we can trust. We found that with Delta 'T' Systems."
All three Savannah Pilots Association boats use Delta 'T' ventilation systems, including the newest, the 75 ft Georgia.
Georgia can reach up to 28 knots with twin 1,350 hp Cummins KTA-38 M2 engines. Designed by Camarc Design and built by Kvichak Marine Industries, this state-of-the-art, aluminum pilot boat provides excellent maneuverability in even the worst storms.
"Our Delta "T" ventilation systems have endured the toughest marine conditions," said Galuk. "We've been using their products for at least 10 years and haven't had a single issue."
Delta "T" Systems manufactures a broad range of ventilation products, including fans, blowers, dampers, closures, moisture eliminators, vents, control systems and other related ventilation components and accessories. Their custom-designed systems are found in commercial, military and pleasure boats worldwide.
The company provides complete support before, during and after installation.
