As a result of its extended product program, Volvo Penta has been chosen as the complete engine supplier for a new series of tugs in the Ukraine. In all, this will involve deliveries of 15 diesel engines for three sister vessels which will be built in 2002. Volvo Penta’s order is worth about $3.29 million from the Ukraine for the engines for a total of three multi-purpose tugs. These engines will be installed as follows: Two 65-liter propulsion engines for each tug; two seven-liter engines for powering gen sets on board each boat; one six-liter engine for operating the fire pumps on board each tug; making a total of 15 engines, six of which are the largest in Volvo Penta’s large marine diesel program and nine of which are six- to seven-litre engines.

The tugs, which are more than 98 ft. long, will also be used as fire-fighting vessels.
