Norvegia and Spagna: New RAmparts 2500W Class Tugs for Italy

Friday, October 21, 2011

In August the RAmparts 2500W tug Norvegia was delivered by Astilleros Armon of Navia, Spain to owners, Rimorchiatori Riuniti in Genoa, Italy. Shortly afterward in early September, the second vessel of Rimorchiatori Riuniti's two boat order, the Spagna, was delivered. The RAmparts 2500W is a new variation on Robert Allan Ltd's standard RAmparts 2500 design. It was developed in collaboration with Rimorchiatori Riuniti who were looking for a compact, yet powerful shipdocking tug for their operations in the historic and busy port of Genoa. The result is a compact tug designed to provide excellent all round visibility. The design features a much wider beam than the standard RAmparts 2500 design, with an aft- biased deckhouse and wheelhouse for working under the extreme flare of modern vessels. It has a large forward working deck, and relatively low draft.
Astilleros Armon performed an admirable job constructing the vessels true to the design drawings and the quality is evident in the finished product. The tugs are built to RINA Classification requirements, with the notation C,  HULL,  MACH, Tug, AUT-UMS, "Unrestricted Navigation".
The Norvegia and Spagna are configured with crew accommodations for 6. The wheelhouse is sized to accommodate all the control functions with maximum visibility for the operator. The main deck accommodates two officer cabins, a mess and a galley. The lower accommodation deck, which remains above the deepest load waterline in all load conditions, features two crew cabins, WC and shower, a laundry, and a generous stores room.
