The new EuroTractorTug 2410, named Condor has been completely built in the Netherlands by Neptune Shipyards in Aalst. Within 14 months the Condor went from drawing to sailing. The Condor is a harbour assistance tug with optimum manoeuvrability. The vessel can be used for plough work and because of an efficient a-frame, she can be mobilised immediately for quick response jobs.
The Condor is equipped with two Caterpillar C32 main engines, which generate 970 kW propulsion power and two Volvo D7A generator sets. During the bollard pull the vessel reached 27 tons bollard pull and a maximum speed of over 11 knots. The vessel is equipped with Voith propellers, to create excellent manoeuvring capabilities. The Condor is outfitted with a 60 tons towing winch, an a-frame with dredging plough and a compact deck crane.
The Condor is classed by Bureau Veritas and delivered with a Dutch flag.
