Turkey: 'Ayten Cebi' Tug Completes Sea Trials
With a free running speed of 11.7 knots and average bollard pull of 35 tonnes the vessel has surpassed her contract conditions.
The 23m Macduff designed tug named ‘Ayten Cebi’ recently completed its sea trials. Built by Torgem in Tuzla, Turkey the vessel ran successful trials, with a free running speed of 11.7 knots and average bollard pull of 35 tonnes the vessel has surpassed her contract conditions.
The vessel comes as a result of close co-operation between designer and builder. The tug utilitizes the Mampaey DOT towing system adding safety, controllability and, above all, flexibility to the performance of tugs enabling them to rotate in all directions in a safe and controlled manner irrespective of the heading of the assisted vessel.
In June 2012, Macduff secured it’s largest single contract for a total of ten vessels comprising five new designs. The order has been placed by Torgem in Turkey who are building the vessels for Saudi Arabia.23.00m DOT Tug:Length / 23.00mBreadth / 8.00mDepth / 4.00mMain Engines / 2 x 1000hp @ 1600rpmPropeller / 2 x 1800mm in nozzleBollard Pull / 26 Tonnes
