Berg Propulsion Wins Six Vessel Order in Ukraine

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

Berg Propulsion secured a significant new reference in Ukraine covering installation of propulsion equipment on board six heavy-duty shallow draft pusher tugboats due delivery to grain trader and ship owner Nibulon.

The vessels, to be built at Ukraine’s Wadan Okean Shipyard, will be ice strengthened for operation in harsh conditions to support transhipment operations, principally in the Dnieper River region. They will be used to steer barges by pushing or towing, service barges and other vessels in port, break ice in the winter, and support mooring operations.

The order covers 13 (12 + spare) Berg Azimuth Thrusters (BAT) with control systems, with vessel deliveries scheduled for December 2010 through February 2011.

Mustafa Müslüm, General Manager for Berg Propulsion Istanbul, said that the very tough conditions in which the vessels would operate meant that the owner had been meticulous in selecting reliable propulsion equipment.
