Thursday, May 16, 2002
Marcon International, Inc. of Coupeville, Wash., has been authorized by the Russian Navy to offer for longterm commercial bareboat charter the twin screw, ocean firefighting salvage tugs Fotiy Krylov and SB-408. The 24,480 bhp, 40,000 hp salvage tug 97.6m Fotiy Krylov (ex-Tsavliris Giant, SB-135) was designed in co-operation with Wijsmuller Engineering and is one of the largest, most powerful and sophisticated tugs in the international salvage fleet. She was originally built in 1989 at a reported cost of about $45 million by Hollming Oy of Rauma, Finland for the Russian Navy and has the reported capability of towing a laden tanker of up to 500,000 dwt. Powered by four Wärtsilä Vaasa 12V32D's driving two 4.6m diameter controllable pitch props in fixed kort nozzles, the tug can deliver about 248 metric tons of bollard pull. The 7,000 bhp/12,000 hp salvage tug SB-408 (ex-Tsavliris Challenger, ex-Hulk) was built in 1984 by Rauma-Repola Uusika, Finland as one of four Silva class non-ice breaking ocean-going salvage tugs. She is powered by two Zavod Russkiy Pielstick 6PC2-5L-400 for a total of 7,000 bhp nominal and 7,800 bhp maximum continuous driving CP props in kort nozzles developing a bollard pull of about 94 metric tons. Both tugs were previously on charter to Tsavliris Group through November 2001 and are now charter-free.
