LEEVAC Shipyards, LLC recently delivered the first of two Z-Tech 2400 harbor tug boats, the Chloe K to Bay-Houston Towing Co.

TheChloe K was constructed at LEEVAC Shipyard Jennings, LLC and was later transported, via one of LEEVAC’s own dry-docks, to LEEVAC Shipyard Lake Charles, LLC facility where the Chloe Kreceived her final outfitting, commissioning, and testing.

“This is the first tug that LEEVAC Shipyards, LLC has built in many years. This was namely due to the draft restrictions at our Jennings facility. Now, with the addition of our LEEVAC Shipyard Lake Charles facility, we can now build deeper draft vessels such as tug boats and fishing vessels that we were not on our radar screen before” said Christian Vaccari, President of LEEVAC. “Thanks to our combined efforts between our world class facilities, we were able to deliver this vesselto a satisfied customer."

The Robert Allan designed Z-Tech 2400 harbor tug is 80 feet long, with a 38 foot beam, and a working draft of 16 feet. She is powered by two of Caterpillar’s 3516C HD high power engines, delivering 2,575 horsepower each. The Caterpillar engines are mated to Model SRP-1215 Schottel drives, driving 94 inch stainless steel propellers. The vessel was designed and was able to produce a 60 MT of bollard pull.
