Tug from Forward Marine

Monday, August 13, 2007
Forward Shipbuilding Enterprise Sdn Bhd. is a tug builder from Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia. On a recent visit the yard was typically full of tugs under construction including two boats in the water and a third ready for the water. Being readied for the launch the 31 x 8.6-meter tug SS 3200 shows a fair hull with a fine bow merging with a double-chine that sweeps aft in a manner that will bring good water flow to the 2300m/m diameter props in nozzles. A pair of rolling chocks will contribute to crew comfort at sea. Driving thishull is a pair of Cummins KTA50 M2 main engines each generating 1600 hp at 1800 RPM. The engines turn into Reintjes WAF665 marine gears with 5.95:1 gears. Electrical generators are powered by two Cummins 6BTS5.9D(M). Scott & English (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. supplied the vessel's engines. A double-drum towing winch is mounted on deck. The boat is built to GL class.
