Peruvian tug operator Tramarsa is planning to expand its fleet with a new escort and harbour tug, which it has ordered from a Chinese shipyard. Tramarsa has contracted Jiangsu Wuxi Shipyard to construct a 75-tonne bollard pull and 24.4 m long tug.
This will be based on a RAmparts 2400-W design, supplied by Robert Allan, and will be classed by ABS for unrestricted navigation and towage. Lima will have a FiFi 1 fire-fighting system and power of 4,480 kW from two engines of 2,240 kW each.
This 11.25 m breadth tug will join two other RAmparts 2400-W tugs, 2016-built Chincha and Tupaq, in Tramarsa’s fleet when it is mobilised to Peru. These tugs are operating at the port of Callao in Peru.
