The new 70-tonne bollard pull tugs will be 33-metre long, and a beam of 12.2 metres and a draft of 4.2 metres propelled by two main engines of 1,838 kilowatts, thrusters of 2.7-metre dia, diesel generators of 150 kW, forward towing winch, aft winch, deck crane and external fire fighting system, the company stated. It added that a design house designed the harbour tugs for Robert Allan Limited. They will be built under the Indian flag and classed with the Indian Register of Shipping (IRS).

 

The tugs will confirm the approved standard tug design and specifications, promulgated by the Indian government, in line with the Aatmanirbhar Bharat and Make In India initiatives, the company said.

 

UCSL is the first shipyard to contract and construct tugs confirming the approved design and specifications.

 

The company said that UCSL had earlier bagged a contract to construct two 62 T bollard pull ASD tugs for OSL, which were delivered before the contractual delivery dates. OSL has deployed the same at Paradeep Port and New Mangalore Port.

 

Apart from that, UCSL further signed another contract with Polestar Maritime Limited to construct 2 ASD tugs of 70 T Bollard Pull. The first vessel 'Konna Star' was handed over before its delivery date and is operating at the Deendayal Port in Kandla. The second vessel is under construction at the UCSL yard in Malpe, Karnataka.
