Schottel has been selected to deliver a total of ten rudder propellers and two transverse thrusters to Turkey’s Sanmar Shipyards.

The units are for installation in two LNG-fueled escort tugs as well as three battery-powered harbour tugs ordered by Canadian operator HaiSea Marine.

The Robert Allan Ltd-designed vessels will provide ship assist and towing services to LNG carriers stopping at a new LNG export facility in Kitimat, British Columbia. All five tugs are scheduled to enter service in 2023.
