ECTUG Adds To Halifax Fleet

August 27, 1999

Eastern Canada Towing Ltd. (ECTUG) has purchased a newly-built azimuthing stern drive (ASD) harbor tug at a cost of $3.7 million. Named Point Valiant and handed over to ECTUG in December 1998, she has a bollard pull of 45 tons and will be based in the Port of Halifax. Point Valiant replaces a much smaller tug, the 1962-built 24-ton bollard pull single screw Point Vigour. Point Valiant is the second of two identical tugs built by Ocean Industries Inc. of Quebec, the first of which is now operating in the Port of Montreal. The new tug is powered by twin 2,038-bhp Mitsubishi S16R-MPTA main engines driving Niigata ZP-21 (Z-drive) propellers.
