Greener Tug Bound for Danish Port
June 3, 2020 — GreenPort.com
A newbuild tugboat will bring greener operations and higher efficiency when it goes into operation at a Danish port.The RAmparts 3000 series tug built by the Turkish shipyard UZMAR Shipbuilding will go into operation at the Port of Aarhus sometime in 2021. Mr Krøyer pointed out that the new tug will create significant CO2 savings at the port. The new tugboat is also significantly stronger than the 40-year-old tugboat it is replacing, Hermes. It has 65 tonnes of bollard pull, 20 tonnes more than its predecessor. It will also have significantly better maneuverability and thus efficiency and precision in its work. It can assist the very large vessels arriving in Aarhus with great precision, as it will be equipped with an Azimuth Stern Drive (ASD) system.
