In mid October 2018, ICDAS Turkey completed construction of its second Z-Tech 6500 tug, the KARA YUSUF-2, which will operate in Çanakkale Turkey. After successful construction and operation in 2011 of the ICDAS-19, the first Z-Tech 6500 tug of its fleet, ICDAS decided to build a second one.

The deck machinery comprises a hydraulic towing winch DWF 35x130H on the bow, spooled with 200 m of Ø56 tow line. An independent anchor windlass is provided on aft deck. Rescue boat and davit is provided and located on bridge deck.

Main propulsion for each tug comprises a pair of MTU 16V4000M63 diesel engines, each rated at 2000 kW at 1800 rpm, and driving a Rolls Royce US 205 FP, Ø2500 Z-drive unit. The electrical plant consists of two identical Deutz, BF6M1013M diesel gen-sets, each with a power output of 112 eKw 400 v, 3-Ph, 50 Hz.

Ship-handling fenders at the bow consist of one tier of 800 OD x 400 ID with one 400 OD x 200 ID cylindrical fender at the main deck level, 480 x 300 W-Block fenders below the cylindrical fender; and 300 x 300 D type fenders along the sheer lines of main deck; 400 OD x 200 ID fendering is used at the stern.
