Via tugtechnologyandbusiness.com

Chinese port and terminal developments and tug fleet expansion demands has led to Jiangsu Zhenjiang Shipyard launching or lifting six more tugs for domestic operators in the last two months. The latest of these tug new buildings was launched for the new owner on 12 July.

The Chinese shipyard launched Ninggang 26, an 4400PS design azimuthing stern drive (ASD) harbour tug for its client Nanjing Port Group Co on 12 July. This followed the lifting of another tug, a 2,942 kW ASD vessel, for launching on 7 July.

In a series of new construction orders, Jiangsu Zhenjiang Shipyard delivered a batch of tugboats, to its own designs, for Chinese port operators in June. This included the delivery of Zhougang Tuo 31, a 6,800hp tug, and 5,000hp, Gangxing Tuo 233, for Ningbo Zhoushan Port Co.

Also in June, Jiangsu Zhenjiang Shipyard launched a 5000PS design ASD tugboat and a 3,676kW ASD tug for domestic shipowners.
