Singapore-based companies Vallianz Holdings and SeaTech Solutions International have entered into a binding memorandum of understanding (MOU) to develop a new range of environment-friendly, electric-powered harbour tugs.

Each tug will have an LOA of 26 metres, a beam of 12.8 metres, a bollard pull of 60 tonnes, and a service speed of 12 knots. The vessels will utilise an existing SeaTech design and will be developed to comply with the 2030 and 2050 emissions targets set by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO).

Upon completing development of the design for the new tug, Vallianz intends to utilise Vallianz Group’s Indonesian shipyard, Vallianz USP, to begin preparation works for potential clients and vessel owners.

The MOU is valid for two years unless mutually extended in writing by both parties.
