Port of Cork Uses Castrol’s Environmentally Responsible Lubricants

Monday, February 07, 2011

Port of Cork has turned to Castrol Marine to further reduce its environmental footprint and protect the sensitive waters in which it operates. Castrol Marine’s Bio Range of environmentally-responsible lubricants are designed for use throughout a vessel where leakage presents a risk. The agreements cover the use of Castrol BioBar 46, a high specification, environmentally responsible hydraulic oil, which is being used in two key Port of Cork vessels, the Multi-cat work boat M.V. Denis Murphy and the tug boat M.V. Gerry O’Sullivan.

M.V. Denis Murphy, one of four vessels of its kind in Ireland, is in high demand throughout Ireland and the UK. Its basic functions include towing, plough dredging, buoy handling and anchor handling. The maneuverability and draft of the vessel give it an advantage in tight working spaces, while the positioning instrumentation on the bridge ensures that work is carried out efficiently and in the right areas.

M.V. Gerry O’Sullivan, the first Voith tug to operate in Cork Harbor, has proved extremely successful over the last 14 years. Fitted with a Voith-Schneider propulsion system, the tug has a bollard pull capacity of 50 tons, and is fitted with fire fighting equipment, classified as Fi-Fi 1. The tug is Lloyds registered to class +100 A1.
