Canada’s Most Powerful Commissioned

The 6000 kW ASD tug ‘Ocean Tundra’ – Canada’s most powerful – was commissioned into service on December 13th, 2013.

The vessel heralds a new generation of extremely capable tugs which will provide the highest degree of year-round escort towing capability to Canada’s east coast and the St. Lawrence River and Seaway system.

The Ocean Tundra, latest addition to the Ocean Groupe Inc. (Ocean) fleet, is a TundRA 100 series (with a nominal 100 tonnes Bollard Pull) tug designed by Robert Allan Ltd., Naval Architects of Vancouver B.C.. The vessel was built at Ocean’s own shipyard on Iles aux Coudres, Quebec.

Canada’s Most Powerful CommissionedDesigned to provide a wide range of services, including tanker escort, terminal support, general ship-docking operations and icebreaking/ice-management services, the Ocean Tundra is also equipped for coastal and rescue towing and is equipped with a major fire-fighting capability. In addition the vessel is equipped to carry lube oil as cargo, for transfer to transiting ships.

The main propulsion for Ocean Tundra consists of a pair of MAK 9M25C diesel engines, each rated 3000 kW at 750 rpm, and each driving a Rolls-Royce US 305 CPP, 3000 mm. diameter Z-drive unit, in ASD configuration. The main engines, auxiliary engines are resiliently mounted for maximum noise and vibration isolation.

The trials of this powerful tug were completed in early January 2014.
