Prolific Turkish tug-builder Sanmar has sent another tug on its way to work recently, their 16th so far this year.

The Svitzer Tyne, as the name suggests, is heading to the Port of Tyne and will add to Svitzer’s fleet of three tugs currently operating there.

Sanmar notes this Bogacay-Class vessel is the sister to another ordered by Svitzer for use in Peru this past summer and was designed by Robert Allan Ltd based on the Ramparts 2400SX series tug.

Particulars:

  • LOA: 24.4 m
  • Beam: 11.25 m
  • Bollard Pull: 60 ton
  • Engines: 2x Caterpillar 3512 CHD, 1,765kW at 1,800 rev/min
  • Propulsion: Rolls-Royce US 255
  • Class: ABS

“Being on the North Sea coast, the port of Tyne is frequently exposed to some of the more severe weather the UK sees. With 60 tonnes bollard pull, Svitzer Tyne has been ordered and built ready to serve the needs of port of Tyne.” says Phil Dulson, managing director North UK for Svitzer Europe.
