Sweden's most powerful tug

The Port of Luleå has contracted for SEK 150 mln the Spanish Gondán shipyard for the delivery of a hybrid diesel-electric tugboat.

The TundRA 3600 series tug, designed by the Vancouver-based company Robert Allan, will be 36 m long and 13 m wide. Thanks to its 8,000 units of horsepower, the tug will be able to break through ice 60 cm thick at the speed of eight knots. The Ice Class 1AS FS TundRA 3600 series has a nominal 100 tn bollard pull, and escort steering force of 86 tn at 10 knots.

The Luleå port will use the new tug as part of its SEK 3.0+ bln Malmporten (Ore Gateway) project that will among many see the port's fairway dredged in order to accommodate 15 m of draft 160 thou. cargo capacity Baltimax vessels instead of today's 55 thou. These larger ships will need the assistance of a more powerful tug than those serving the port now.
