Harley Marine Services has brought its most powerful and environmentally friendly tug boat to service the Port of Los Angeles. The Robert Franco arrived in Los Angeles last week and joins four other tugs in the fleet that assist cargo vessels and tankers in and out of the San Pedro Bay port complex.

The Robert Franco features Tier III engines and shore-side electrical power plug-in capabilities. Tier III engines, which are several years away from being required by law, reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter amounts by 90% compared to Tier 0 engines.

The powerful tug is equipped with 6,800 horsepower and provides 91 tons of bollard pull. With the increasing size of container ships and tankers calling at the port complex, Harley Marine Services is committed to building higher horsepower tugs to provide these larger ships safe navigation in the port complex and provide emergency towing service offshore. The vessel is also equipped with state-of-the-art marine electronics, tow winches and fire and safety equipment.
