Bristol Harbor Will Modify Tug

Thursday, May 02, 2002
Bristol Harbor Marine Design (BHMD) was recently awarded the contract from Blount/Barker Shipbuilding, of Warren R.I., to modify the design of an 85 ft. tug. The new tug is based on an 85 ft. tug currently under construction at the yard, the design of which was developed by BHMD and based on a classic Blount design. BHMD will take advantage of Computerized Numeric Controlled (CNC) cutting for the hull and deckhouse modification. Two CAT 3512 engines and 4:1 Twin Disc gears will power the tugboat. Two 65kW generators will supply the ship’s service power. The tug will be keel cooled and equipped with two, four-blade stainless steel propellers measuring 76-in. in diameter. In August, Blount Barker Shipbuilding signed a contract with Sea Wolf Marine of Bayonne, N.J. to build the 2,200 – bhp, 85 ft. x 26 ft. double chine, all welded twin-screw tug. The tug will be used for marine towing along inland and intracoastal waterways on the East Coast. Construction is scheduled to start immediately with the completion date set for April 2002. BHMD’s company focus is on naval architecture and marine engineering offering a wide range of design, engineering and analysis services. BHMD utilizes state of the art computer modeling and design tools in concert with time honored design practices to develop innovative and functional designs that meet its customers’ diverse requirements.
