Louisiana shipbuilder Main Iron Works has completed construction of a new tug for local operator Bisso Towboat.
Capt Joseph Bisso is a sister vessel to Andrew S, which was delivered in late 2019.
The new tug has a total installed power of 6,000 hp (4,474 kW) courtesy of two Caterpillar 3516E EPA Tier IV-compliant engines. These deliver a bollard pull of 85 tons (78 tonnes).
Capt Joseph Bisso will be used for escort and ship assist duties.
