A 87-ft Z-drive tug has recently been delivered from the Jiangsu Wuxi Shipyard Co., Ltd. in China to a Peruvian owner Trabajos Maritimos S.A.

Trabajos Maritimos is a comprehensive marine organization offering everything from port agency services, terminal operations, pilotage and towing.

The tug is designed with the forward hawser winch typical of modern docking tugs. A pair of Cummins 6BT5.9DM powered genset each provide 100kW of electrical power while a smaller 38 kW set for harbor service is powered by a Cummins 4BT3.9DM genset.
