Foss Maritime Takes Delivery of New Tug

Tuesday, November 01, 2005
Foss Maritime have just taken delivery of the powerful new harbor tug Morgan Foss for service in Pacific Coast ports. This "compact" tug is the result of a unique collaboration between Owner, designer, and builder alike. The Morgan Foss is the second in the new series of designated Dolphin Class tugs for Foss, designed by Robert Allan Ltd. in collaboration with Foss' in-house engineering staff, and built in their own shipyard in Rainier, Oregon. The tug is essentially identical to her cousin Mikioi, delivered in 2004. The design incorporates a small number of refinements from the prototype tug, based on the operational feedback from crews on Mikioi. The tug is configured strictly as a high-performance day-boat, with a very compact wheelhouse atop a similarly compact deckhouse which contains only the engine exhaust casings, vent intakes, and a small day-room and lavatory for the crew. The general layout of the tug is illustrated on the General Arrangement Drawing attached. In addition to the overall contract design package, Robert Allan Ltd. were also tasked with producing the complete production engineering package for the shipyard. A complete 3-D steel product model for this series of tugs was developed in ShipConstructor software, and used for NC cutting of all steel parts.
