RMK Marine to build tug pair for local client

Turkish shipbuilder RMK Marine has received an order for two 70-tonne bollard pull tugs from an unnamed local operator.

The vessels will utilise a Robert Allan Ltd ASD tug design.

Each tug will have a length of 25.4 metres, a width of 11.8 metres, and a depth of 4.6 metres. Twin MTU 16V4000M63L 2,240kW diesel engines will deliver a sailing speed of 12 knots.

The tugs will also be equipped with diesel-driven firefighting pumps for their onboard FiFi1 systems mounted on the main engines.
