4,000-HP Tug Delivered By Main Iron Works To Coastal Tug & Barge
Coastal Tug & Barge, Inc., Miami, Fla., recently announced the completion of its newest tug, the Coastal Florida. The innovative design of this motor vessel incorporates the latest advances in marine engineering into Coastal's towing services.
The 90-foot-long, 4,000-horsepower class vessel is powered by two EMD-645 diesel engines coupled to two Ulstein Maritime 1350H Zdrive propeller units capable of rotating 360 degrees under the vessel's stern, eliminating the use of rudders.
More importantly, the tug is built and designed to respond quickly, efficiently and safely to the pilot's command.
"This remarkable tug farther demonstrates our commitment to providing first class service. The addition of the Coastal Florida to our fleet enhances the ship berthing and firefighting capabilities in the Port of Miami," said A1 Espino, senior vice president of Coastal Tug and Barge, Inc.
Classed by the American Bureau of Shipping, "A-l Maltese Ocean Towing Service," the Coastal Flori- da l s equipped with two 1,500-gpm fire monitors. The fire pump is driv- en by a Detroit Diesel 471 engine.
Auxiliary power is supplied by two 75-kw Kato generators driven by two Detroit Diesel 671 diesels. The fully tendered tug also is equipped with two hydraulic cranes, one fore and one aft, and a 60-ton quick release hook.
The Coastal Florida, built by Main Iron Works In Houma, La., with a beam of 32 feet and depth of 13 feet, will provide fueling service and ship docking assistance for vessels employed in the passenger and freight trades of the South Florida area. The tug, stationed in the Port of Miami, joins the company's fleet of 39 tugs and barges operating in the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Coast and the Caribbean.
