Dutch towage and salvage specialist Multraship has acquired a 24-metre ASD tug from Turkish shipbuilder Med Marine for its operations in the Port of Terneuzen, Netherlands.
Multratug 9 has a bollard pull of 50 tonnes and a Robert Allan Ltd tug design. The newly acquired vessel will replace Multraship’s existing 33-tonne bollard-pull tug at the port.
The vessel utilises twin Caterpillar 3512B engines, offering 1,600rpm and 1,230kW each, with a free sailing speed of 12.0 knots.
There are two Perkins B4.4 TWGM gensets and one Cummins MDKBT/U harbour generator, which provides 22.5kW at 1,500rpm power for vessel services, including the deck machinery.
The tug can accommodate six people.
