Med Marine tug goes into service at Izmit Bay

Med Marine has placed its new tug Med XXV into service at Turkey’s Izmit Bay.

Designed by Robert Allan Ltd, the ASD tug is designed for harbour and terminal operations and coastal towing.

The 23-metre by 10.9-metre vessel has a free sailing speed of 12 knots and bollard pull of 50 tonnes.

A pair of Caterpillar diesel engines develops a total output of 2,760bkW at 1.600rpm. Two Caterpillar gensets provide 86ekW electrical power each for vessel services.

A diesel-driven fire-fighting (FiFi) pump for the tug’s FiFi E system is mounted on one of the main engines and can deliver 1,400 cubic metres per hour to two electrically-controlled monitors.

Accommodation includes a captain’s cabin, an officer cabin and two double crew cabins.
