China: Yuexin Shipbuilding Holds Steel Cutting Ceremony for Harbour Tugboat

China - Yuexin Shipbuilding Holds Steel Cutting Ceremony for Harbour Tugboat

On March 6th, at 11:00am of, the steel-cutting ceremony for 38m Multi-function Tugboat YX3185 built for CNPC South-East Asia Pipeline Company Limited was held in Yuexin’s Sub-module Factory. This is the third ASD tug that Yuexin built for CNPC South-East Asia Pipeline Company Limited, and is to be delivered in May of 2013.

The vessel is equipped with two Yanma main engines, Schottel azimuth thruster as well as two Cummins generator sets and Norway FFS Fire-fighting System. Propelled by two diesel engines each rated at 1838kw and two 360°azimuth rotatable thrusters, the vessel is mainly operated in harbor area and is able to assist the 300,000 DWT tanker to manage berthing and underthings. With perfect stability, the vessel is capable of maintaining navigability and maneuverability under the wind of Beaufort Force 8. What’s more, the oil recovery function is the biggest difference of the former two vessels, which plays an important role in protecting marine environment.

With the independent design of Yuexin, the vessel measures 38m in length with a molded breath of 10.6m, a molded depth of 4.8m and a molded draft of 3.5m. The designed ahead bollard pull reaches 62t and the astern reaches 56t.

The vessel will be assigned to work in Kyaunkpyu Island of the west coast of Myanmar. Yuexin has made well production preparation since won the bid in September last year. The steel cutting ceremony of the first two 37m ASD tugs have been held in December last month and the projects is going well.

Ferries Asia Summit

Propelling Regional Waterway Connectivity & Fleet-wide Operational Excellence

Ferry travel is in the limelight. The potential for driving tourism growth is immense – and for archipelago nations battling with urban congestion, ferry services pose a clean, efficient alternative in everyday public transport. But high-profile ferry accidents have brought ever greater attention to safety regulations for Asia’s maritime travel industry.

Amid these circumstances, how can vessel operators cope with ever-tightening safety requirements, while making the right decisions at the right time to capture rising demand? What are the smartest ways to improve service reliability and fleet quality, that maximize operating and capital spend? What are the industry’s best-practices for sustainable growth, and how can they be achieved?

Play your part! Join us at the Ferries Asia Summit 2017 to push forward the regional debate on making Asia’s ferry industry more progressive, safe, and commercially sustainable.
