For this hydrofoil, Marine Technics supplied two MAN D2862LE483 engines with a combined total power of 2120 kW along with ZF 3050V gearboxes and Azcue marine pumps.
Later the same day, a keel laying ceremony was held for the fifth hydrofoil of Meteor 120P series.

Renovated vessels feature a 120-passenger capacity, have a cruising range of 600 kilometers and can reach a top speed of 75 km/h. Meteor 120P hydrofoils can operate along rivers and coastal marine areas.
