Besides services they also offer customized solution-based offshore towing for short- and long-term project requirements. The new vessels, two upgraded ART 90-98US tugs, and two new Rapport 3000 are being built at Master Boat Builders. One of the tugboats is expected to be deliverd in December 2020. The other three tugboats will be delivered in January 2021, June 2021 and July 2021.
Two of these newbuilds will be added to the company’s existing Rotortug fleet. The other two will represent Seabulk’s initial investment in hybrid power towing assets and will operate alongside the company’s existing fleet in the Gulf of Mexico and Florida.
New World Electronics, a dealer of JRC / Alphatron Marine since 2001, will be providing and installing the ordered equipment on four 80 metric ton bollard pull harbor tugs. We will provide the integrated bridge systems for all four vessels. These integrated bridge systems combine navigation and communication equipment as well as engine, lighting, and winch controls in one easy-to-access console in the pilothouse. The equipment consists of radars, autopilot controls, GPS, depth sounder, navigation PC, and internal communications.
This tugboat concept is developed together with some of the biggest tugboat operators in the world. The bridge combines two ergonomic and dynamically designed consoles with a central captain’s chair mounted on rails. Emphasizing the attention to detail in all areas, careful consideration has gone into enhancing the performance, satisfaction, and situational awareness of the Watch Officer. Our AlphaTugboat bridge concept offers full control from a sitting position and exceptional all-round visibility.
