Two more tugs have been added to Ocean Sparkle’s fleet to handle LNG carriers at a new LNG terminal in Mumbai, India.
The Cheoy Lee-built Ocean Leader and Ocean Legacy are from Robert Allan Ltd designs.
The 32-metre tugs, which have fire-fighting capacity and more than 300-cubic-metre tank capacity, deliver 72 tonnes of bollard pull and free running speeds of 13 knots.
Their main propulsion includes a pair of Niigata diesel engines, each rated at 1,838kW at 750rpm.
Both vessels have been deployed to operations at the terminal.
