Last Thuesday a new tug has joined the 15-strong fleet of Thomas Services Maritimes headquartered in Rouen. The vessel is built by Padmos Shipyard Stellendam, the Netherlands.

 This highly manoeuvrable ASD tug is equipped for towing both over the bow and over the stern. In addation bed-levelling operations using a plough could be undertaken by the vessel. Measuring 20,35m in length overall with a beam of 8,20m and a draft of 4,20m and is powered by two Mitsubishi S12R MPTAW-2 main engines of 960kW each at 1600rpm. This power is transmitted by carbon shafts to a pair of Rolls-Royce US155FP fully azimuthing Z-drives. This arrangement gives the vessel a bollard pull of 32,5tonnes.  Below the main deck 3 crew cabins are situated beside a toilet and shower. Also a small messroom/kitchen is located below the main deck. The winches are all Ridderinkhof made, the bow and stern winch with a holding power of 34tons, two tugger winches and one single anchorwinch. At least the knuckle boom crane of 38t/m and the stainless steel stern roller gives the vessel a maximum of multifunctional possibilities.
