Pella Shipyard in the Leningrad region of Russia will deliver two pusher type towboats to their owner “Best” of Samara, Russia in late summer of 2006. Designed by Spetssudoproekt of St. Petersburg, the 30.4 by 8.8-m (99.7x28.9-feet) will have a molded depth of 3.8 m and a 2.8 m draft. Propulsion will be provided by a pair of Cummins KTA38-M1 engines rated for 746 kW (1,000 hp) at 1,800 rpm. The engines will turn into a pair of Rolls-Royce model US155 Z-drives with 1600 mm (63-in.) fixed-pitch propellers in nozzles. This propulsion system is expected to be give the boat a 24-ton bollard pull and a 13-knot light running speed. Auxiliary engines are two 6B-CP80DM/5 (80 kW, 50 Hz) and one 47 kw emergency gen set for each vessel. Each vessel will be fitted with a single 10-ton deck winch. Accommodation will be provided for a total of 13 crew with 11 for the boat and 2 for barge crew.
