The tugs will be operated by the G&H Towing Company of , and will be used primarily at Sempra LNG’s Cameron LNG terminal. The ABS-classed tugs will feature two MTU Detroit Diesel 16 cylinder series 4000 Marine Engines with M70 Rating, Lufkin Model MV1600S, with 2:1 ratio reduction gears, Rolls Royce model US 255 FP Z-drives, for a minimum thrust ahead of 80 tons at bollard condition. Two John Deere JDFMG-6081A-185KW-ABS-T2 engines will drive Marathon Magna Plus 185 kW generators with PMG excitation.   A Markey DESF-48-200 hp High Performance ARR Electric Hawser Winch will be installed on the foredeck. The aft deck will be outfitted with an H-bitt fabricated from 16-in. Schedule 120 steel pipe. These tugs will be constructed in Washburn & Doughty’s new shipyard, which is scheduled for completion in June 2009. The new building measures 225’ x 155’ and features two construction bays, each equipped with two, twenty-ton cranes. A central, two level mezzanine contains shop space and offices for production support. This 42,000 sq. ft. facility is designed for vessels up to 200’ long by 50’ wide. The new building provides Washburn & Doughty with increased capacity, which allows the shipyard to take on more projects and build larger boats than was possible in the previous building.
