First LNG Fuelled Tug ‘Borgøy’ Completes Its Sea Trials

M/T Borgøy, the world’s first tug to be fuelled by the much more environmentally friendly liquefied natural gas (LNG), completed her sea trials successfully this month and started her maiden voyage on 14th of January.

The tug is designed by Norwegian Buksèr og Berging in-house team with the assistance of Marine Design AS in Norway and further developed by Sanmar’s modern shipyard in Istanbul,

The engines, propulsion package and LNG system has been delivered by Rolls Royce. Usage of LNG in this tugboat eliminates sulphur emissions, bring particulate matter emissions down close to zero and reduce the discharge of CO2 and NOx by 26 per cent and 80-90 percent respectively.

She will be operated by Buksèr og Berging in Statoil’s Kaarstoe Gas Terminal.
