The Largest ASD Tugs in Asia Delivered

Two 8200hp ASD tugs named “Huan yu san hao” and “Huan yu liu hao” were successfully delivered by Jiangsu Zhenjiang Shipyard Group Co., Ltd. to Qingdaon port Co., Ltd.

These two vessels are the largest ASD tugs in Asia, and they can fully provide towing-assistance to other very large vessels including aircraft carriers etc.

Industry insiders think that this is the milestone which indicates a new century of design and building of such powerful ASD tugs in China. According to the reports, these two tugs will work for Qingdao port’s Dongjiakou harbor 400000 ton ore terminal, providing necessary towing-assistance to the six generation container vessels and other very large vessels.
