First of Three Tugs Delivered to Indian Navy

Monday, May 03, 2004
The first of a three-vessel order has recently been delivered to the Indian Navy by the Tebma Shipyard located on the Indian East Coast. Each tug is to be powered by a pair of V-12 cylinder Cummins KTA38M2 main engines each developing 1200 HP continuous duty at 1800 RPM. The 2400 HP tugs have a 25-ton bollard pull. Engines for the second vessel in the series have just been delivered to the shipyard. A photo of the first tug, named INS Bhim, is attached to this release. The designation INS that precedes the name denotes the vessel as Indian Naval Service. The Tebma Shipyard (www.tebma.com) builds a wide range of vessels from dredges to keep irrigation canals clear to larger passenger ferries and mega yachts.
