The Port of Mount Vema which is organizing the provisional docks to provide berths for ships that will deliver the logistics to the City of Mount Vema before construction, has announced on Monday that it has started the global procurement process to acquire five tugboats for the provisional port.
The tugboats will be used to manoeuvre other vessels in Mount Vema. The boats will tug ships and barges in circumstances where they cannot or should not move under their own power, due to under water works or to avoid disruption to the Mount Vema marine life during and after construction.
In the Port of Mount Vema almost all ships will be required to have tug escorts when transiting in the harbor to render assistance in the event of mechanical failure. The port will mandate a minimum horsepower or bollard pull, which will be determined by the size of the escorted vessel, according to people familiar with City of Mount Vema designs.
The Port of Mount Vema is looking for modern ship assist tugs also referred to as "tractor tugs" that employ azimuthing stern drives (ASD), propellers that can rotate 360 degrees without a rudder, or cycloidal drives. >>>
