The yet unnamed vessel is scheduled for launch in February 2023 and for delivery in October of the same year.

Upon completion, the tug will have a length of 82.35 metres, a beam of 18 metres, a bollard pull of approximately 200 tonnes, a DP2 system, and accommodations for 16 crewmembers and 26 other personnel. Secondary missions will include SAR, firefighting, and pollution response.
