Following the launch of the Z-Tech 6000, in 2004, Cheoy Lee’s harbour tugs have gained a high level of respect, resulting in increased demand from buyers worldwide. Excellent design and efficient construction to the very highest standards have been the hallmarks of the successful commitment to this sector. Cheoy Lee’s successful collaboration with Robert Allan, has led to the development of five new series of tugs, all between 27 and 32m in length. Since 2004, over 50 of these tugs have been sold, to clients ranging from towage companies and mining giants, to the Panama Canal Authority.
The latest tug completed from the drawing board of Robert Allan is a RAmparts 3200CL. The first of its kind, this new tug is also the first in a batch of two vessels ordered by a client based in India. The RAmparts 3200CL has a range of engine options. The first two units are fitted with twin Caterpillar 3516B engines, each developing 2500hp. These diesels drive a pair of azimuthing Schottel SRP1215FP rudder propellers. The tugs offer excellent maneuverability, a top speed of 13 knots and bollard pull of 62 tonnes. A complement of 10 crew can be carried, with accommodation on the main and lower decks forward.
Cheoy Lee yard number 5009 left the builders Kowloon shipyard in mid-May, 2011 for Singapore under the command of the owner’s delivery crew. The vessel is likely to initially enter service in Cambodia.
The all steel tugs are constructed to Lloyds Register classification with the notation, +100A1, Tug, Fire-Fighting Ship 1 with Water Spray *IWS, +LMC, UMS.
Principal Dimensions: 32.00m LOA x 12.40m Beam x 4.88m Draft.
