Two newly built custom tugboats have been delivered to Canadian based SNC Lavalin to operate during the construction of Montreal's New Champlain Bridge on the Saint Lawrence River.
The new vessels, one 13 meters long and the other 15 meters long, were built in Turkey by Besiktas Shipyard's workboats division and were completed according the regulations of Transport Canada as well as Bureau Veritas.
The 15-meter Turbulent has a bollard pull of 17 tons with its Volvo Penta D16 main engines that each produces 750 hp at 1,900 rpm, and the 13-meter Intense has a bollard pull of 13 tons with its Volvo Penta D13 main engines that each produces 550 hp at 1,900 rpm.
Both vessels are equipped with two screw fixed pitch propellers in nozzles and Fernstrum high performance keel coolers that do not let any increase in coolant temperatures during 100 percent load test, even in a seawater of 25 ℃ in Turkey, the builder said.
