Tugs Ordered for El Salvador LNG Project

Chile’s SAAM Towage has ordered two RAstar 3200W azimuth tugs from Turkish shipyard UZMAR for operation in El Salvador following the awarding of a contract to provide ship assist services for the Energía del Pacífico (EDP) LNG project in that country.

Designed by Canada’s Robert Allan Ltd the twin tugs, to be delivered next year, will measure 32 meters in beam, have a bollard pull of 75 tons and reach a maximum speed of 12.5 knots. SAAM Towage currently operates a fleet of more than 155 tugs at over 60 ports in the Americas servicing around 25,000 ships annually.
