Neptune Marine delivered an ICE-classed EuroTug 3010 to Russia-based Beluga Projects Logistic. The standard EuroTug design has been customized to meet the tough environmental conditions of its operating area and specific equipment for pushing operations. The vessel has been delivered in Q3 2019.

Robust designs

Beluga Projects Logistic operates in extreme weather conditions. Therefore, Neptune Marine was asked to customize a standard design to meet the requirements. One of the most remarkable changes to the standard design is the upgrade to ICE-Class 1B. Besides the strengthened steel structure, the machinery onboard has been carefully selected to comply with all class requirements. Beluga Rotterdam is now able to operate in significant sea ice. Its owners also asked for a specific push bow and extra wheelhouse on top of the bridge for better views from the bridge while pushing.

Bollard pull

The newbuild tug will be used for worldwide towage-pushing operations, anchor handling and also for ice-breaking operations in Russia’s northern territorial waters. EuroTugs are designed to perform at their best in both coastal and offshore waters, offering excellent bollard pulls for this type of vessel.

Customized vessels in stock

Neptune Marine stands for customized vessels that can be delivered within a short time frame. The hull of the vessel has already been built in stock, ready for customization and finalization for a client. As soon as there was an agreement between Neptune Marine and Beluga Projects Logistic, the experienced engineering team of Neptune started to include the client’s requirements into the final design. The vessel has been delivered in 8 months.

EuroTugs are robust tugs, designed to meet the toughest operational requirements. Its maximum free deck space and notable bollard pull performance have proven their outstanding performance over the years.
