The Rastar 3200W vessels will allow us to provide exceptional service for the important, specific requirements of this major project, consisting of the first floating storage and regassification unit in both the country and the region. It will cover an important percentage of the nation’s energy demand and will help diversify its energy matrix with more sustainable fuel.
The new tugs measure 32 meters long and were specially designed to meet the needs of the LNG terminal, with bollard pull of more than 80 tons.
They are also equipped with specific safety features, including a remotely operated gas detection and automatic isolation system, deck equipment and machinery with explosive atmosphere certification (ATEX), and a Fire-Fighting 1 system for fighting offship fires, certified under Bureau Veritas classification rules.
A third tug will join these operations soon.
