The tug is based on a Voith Schneider design and will have a length of 31.5 meters and beam of 12.5 meters. Classed by Lloyd’s Register, the tug will have two Voith 32R5 cycloidal propellers coupled to MAN B&W 8L27/38 diesel engines, each developing 2,670 kW.
The tug will be fitted with a Hatlapa towing hook and winch.
