Bestobell valves ordered for Middle East’s first LNG tug

Bestobell Marine, part of the President Engineering Group, said it has received a new order from Wärtsilä Fuel Gas Handling division, to supply the Middle East’s first LNG fuelled harbour tug.

The order will see Bestobell Marine supply a complete set of cryogenic globe valves to be fitted in Wärtsilä’s LNG-Pac fuel gas systems for its new harbour tug design which will be built at Dubai Drydocks, the company said in a statement. The new tug will use LNG as the primary fuel and will be operated by Dubai Maritime City.

United Arab Emirates-based TASNEEF, the class society for the project, will provide the classification and advisory services for the LNG fuel project.
