Suez Canal Orders Ferries, Tractors

Friday, July 07, 2006
The Suez Canal Authority has ordered another 18 Voith Schneider Propellers from Voith Turbo. The propellers are of two different types of size 14 for ferries, as well as size 28 for Voith Water Tractors. The vessels are built by Port Said Shipyard in Port Said where they will also be put in operation. A total of three new Voith Water Trac¬tors will be fitted with VSPs size 28. Each of these Voith Water Tractors that will be used for marine assis¬tance and escorting ser¬vices in the 163-km-long Suez Canal has a bol¬lard pull of over 50 tons. Like the three Voith Water Tractors, the five double-ended ferries will be stationed in Port Said, Egypt’s sec¬ond largest harbor. Across the Suez Canal, ferry traffic is busy, especially between Egypt and Sinai. Voith Tur¬bo Marine will deliver a total of twelve VSPs for these double-ended ferries, installed in five vessels. The other two VSPs are kept as spares.
