LNG-Powered Harbor Tug For Singapore

07 May 2018

Wärtsilä will design and equip one of PSA Marine’s newest harbor tugs that will operate on liquefied natural gas (LNG) and incorporating other fuel efficiency features.

The 28-m long, 50-tonne bollard pull harbor tug will operate with two Wärtsilä 20DF dual-fuel engines running primarily on LNG fuel. Wärtsilä will also supply its LNGPac fuel storage and supply system as well as steerable thrusters and the Wärtsilä ProTouch control system. The equipment will be delivered to the yard at the end of 2018 and the harbor tug is slated to commence operations in the port of Singapore around mid-2019.

The tug, which will be built by PaxOcean Shipyard, will be aligned with the maritime industry’s increasing emphasis on environmental impact, the company said. The order with Wärtsilä to build its first LNG-fueled harbor tug is also in line with PSA Marine’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint as a leading service provider of marine services.

“We are honored to have been selected to provide both the ship design and an integrated propulsion solution for this modern, efficient, and environmentally sustainable harbor tug,” said Riku-Pekka Hägg, vice president of Ship Design, Wärtsilä Marine Solutions. “Being the one-stop-shop for this vessel, from the design to the engineering and machinery supply, Wärtsilä can ensure a fully integrated and optimized harbor tug. This not only supports the entire project, but also eases the procurement and supplier interfacing processes for the shipyard.”
