Rolls-Royce: Tale of two LNG-fueled tugs (VIDEO)

The world’s first escort tugs fueled solely by LNG and powered by Rolls-Royce engines, are already proving themselves at a gas-processing terminal in Norway.

The Rolls-Royce propulsion package includes the gas tank and supply system and two of the latest design US35 azimuth thrusters that ensure the tugs have rapid manoeuvring and positioning capabilities – essential for tug operation.
