HMC orders two state-of-the-art anchor handling tugs
Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) has signed a Letter of Intent with Astilleros Armon, in Vigo, Spain, for the construction of two new state-of-the-art Anchor Handling Tugs.
Both tugs will be equipped with a retractable bow thruster and will have DP2 capabilities. With a length of 72 meters and a width of 18 meters, the fully custom-built tugs will be larger than HMC's existing tugs, the Husky and Retriever.
Each tug will have a bollard pull of 180 tonnes and can hold up to 2500 m3 of fuel, sufficient to sail directly from Rotterdam to Cape Town, South Africa. The anchor winch capacity will be able to install anchors in water depths up to 1500 meters. Each tug will also have accommodation for 28 people. The two tugs are expected to be delivered in 2013.
