NIBULON launched the third POSS-115 Project tug
NIBULON shipbuilding and repair yard says it has recently launched the third POSS-115 project tug out of four ones envisaged by its production program. The main purpose of the tugs is to escort convoys of non-self-propelled vessels along the Dnipro River and the BDLC.
NIBULON-10 tug was launched as always with the observance of all traditions. Maryna Pelykh, a crane operator and a vessel’s godmother, symbolically broke a champagne bottle against the vessel’s side. She operates all types of portal, overhead and gantry cranes and she has been trained to operate a new LPS180 portal slewing crane (Germany).
We would remind you that the POSS-115 project tugs have the following technical particulars: length – 37.2 m, draught – 2.54 m, capacity – 1,320 kW, speed – 11 knots. They are equipped with modern equipment produced by the world’s leading manufacturers. We have installed on these tugs main engines from Mitsubishi (Japan), auxiliary generators and an emergency diesel generator from Volvo-Penta (Sweden), rudder propellers from Rolls-Royce (Finland), a boiler from Viessmann (Germany), deck equipment from DMT (Romania), and others. The shipyard’s program for 2018-2019 envisages the launching of four POSS-115 project tugs. The fourth tug will be launched next month.
NIBULON’s shipbuilders are assembling the bottom sections of the longest vessel in the shipyard’s history – a 140-m self-propelled vessel with two cranes and a storage capacity of 10,000 tons (P-140 project). The vessel will be launched this year. And the fleet of NIBULON’s shipping company will have two unique self-propelled cranes. St. Mykolay crane was built in July 2013. It operates in the outer roads of Mykolaiv Sea Trade Port. It annually proves its efficiency making a significant contribution to the company’s export successes. And this allows the company to maintain its leadership in the grain market.
