The birth of a new ship in Zamakona Pasaia

Just we launched in our facilities in Pasajes (San Sebastian) the tug ordered by the Port Authority of Haifa (Israel).

 

Launching is a very important step in the manufacturing process because it´s when sizing and shapes of the boat are tested to see if they´re correct and can be considered as the “birth” of the ship. The launch was a success and we are already undertaking the last part of the pre-assembly before the beginning of testing.

 

The type tractor tug with Voith Schneider propulsion has 70 tons of bollard pull, a length of 31.50 meters by 12.50 meters beam The design was done by VOITH in collaboration with the shipyard engineering, optimizing the hull shape and including some improvements required by the customer in relation to its sister ship ILAN I. Classification will be provided by Lloyd’s Register of Shipping.

 

The ship fulfills the regulations of the Israeli flag especially as regards to noise and vibration, it should be noted that the regulations are more stringent than those set out in international standards.

 

The tug is equipped with 2 propulsion units 32R5 Voith coupled with 2 MAN main engines 8L27/38 each with 2,670 KW. To trail the afterdeck, the ship is equipped with a tow hook and winch manufactured by Hatlapa.

 

Everything is on track to meet our commitment to our customer delivery this coming September.
