New Tug for Bugsier

Friday, October 07, 2005
The Dutch Shipyard K. Damen Europe b.v. delivered a tractor tug to Bugsier-, Reederei- und Bergungs-Gesellschaft mbH & Co. KG, Hamburg. The tug, called Bugsier 1, is fitted with twin azimuth thrusters, is suitable and licensed for use as harbor assistance tug. The tugboat is designed to meet a bollard pull of at least 65 tons with two Ulstein Aquamaster rudder propellers type US 305 FP supplied by Rolls Royce and two Deutz main engines with a total output of 4,050 kW. However, during bollard pull trials the tug reached of bollard pull of 60 tons. During the coming months a modification will be prepared and implemented to overcome this deficiency in bollard pull. Meanwhile, Bugsier will take Bugsier 1 in operation.
