Turkish yard floats out first of three terminal support tugs for Smit Lamnalco Singapore


Uzmar Shipyard in Turkey has launched the first in a series of three ASD terminal/escort tugs ordered by Smit Lamnalco Singapore.

Once completed, the Robert Allan Ltd-designed tug will have a length of 42 metres, FiFi1 equipment, and a ABC 12DZC 2,900kW engine that delivers a bollard pull of 95 tonnes and a speed of 13 knots.

The tug is being built in accordance to Bureau Veritas class rules. It will support operations at the Coral Sur floating LNG project in Mozambique beginning in the fourth quarter of 2021.
