Berg Propulsion’s Breakthrough Contract in Ukraine

Friday, September 03, 2010

Berg Propulsion has secured its first major contract from a Ukraine-based shipowner. The grain trader, terminal operator and transport company has placed orders for Berg Azimuth Thrusters as part of its multi-million dollar fleet investment programme.

The BAT 416 units will be fitted to a series of new tugs, being built in the Ukraine. This is the biggest single order to date for the BAT azimuth thruster system, which was launched by Berg Propulsion in 2009.

The negotiations for this important breakthrough contract were handled by the company’s office in Turkey. Berg Propulsion Turkey general manager, Musafa Muslum said, “The owner was very impressed with the technical solution we offered and the reliability of this equipment, which was better than that of our competitors.”
