Tugboats are compact powerhouses that are always on call to perform tough tasks in all situations. Whether it’s a harbor, oceangoing or anchor handling tug, their diverse job requirements are matched by our wide range of tug boat engines. They are capable of rising to any challenge with a performance spectrum of 400 kW (Series 2000) to 3200kW (Series 4000). We can also offer higher levels of performance for a higher bollard pull of your tugboat propulsion system.
All of our diesel and gas engines perform at the highest levels of reliability with fast load uptake, even in the most challenging conditions. Their high torque levels make towing vessels exceptionally agile, maneuverable and safe – and always ready for action. As an experienced system provider, we also offer onboard power generators and ship automation systems that work perfectly with our robust engines.
How to get the most out of your tugboat fleet
Tugboats play a key role for ensuring that harbor operations run smoothly and safely. By significantly extending TBO intervals, an engine like the mtu Series 4000 M65L greatly helps to ensure fleet availability and profitability.
Use case: Minimize tugboat lifecycle costs by maximizing TBO
How to boost the utilization of your fleet by up to 46%
Fleet availability and lifecycle costs are vital parameters for any marine operation, particularly for tugboats. As the following use case demonstrates, a quality engine like the mtuSeries 4000 M65L can positively impact both in a big way.
Learn how to:
- Optimize maintenance costs over the entire life cycle
- Reduce tugboat downtime
- Maximize operating hours before the engine’s first major overhaul
