The MPV Hirta, launched in 2008, has a diesel electric propulsion system comprising three Wärtsilä 9L20 engines driving a reduction gear and a controllable pitch propeller.

Marine Scotland has three ships in its fleet of Marine Protection Vessels (MPVs). Its role is to encourage all concerned with the marine environment to work together towards agreed priorities and outcomes: and to ensure complementary approaches so that the impact of marine management activity across Scotland exceeds the sum of its constituent parts. While many of its activities are focused on marine issues, it also continues to play an important role in the research and management of freshwater fisheries.
