World’s 1st LNG Fuelled Tug Passes Sea Trials

M/T Borgøy, the world’s first LNG tug, built by Sanmar’s modern shipyard in Istanbul, completed her sea trials successfully this month and started her maiden voyage on 14th of January.

The concept was designed by Norwegian Buksèr og Berging in-house team with the assistance of Marine Design AS in Norway.

The engines, propulsion package and LNG system have been delivered by Rolls Royce. Usage of LNG in this tugboat eliminates sulphur emissions, brings particulate matter emissions down close to zero and reduces 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.
