The first IMO Tier III certified tugboat, in Europe, is about to be constructed. Namely, Caterpillar Marine informed that Uzmar Workboat and Tug Factory will built the vessel.
The tugboat will be powered with Cat 3516E 2525bkW engines, and Cat C7.1 118ekW generators with Selective Catalytic Reactor (SCR) systems to comply with IMO Tier III certification requirements. Uzmar will cooperate with Cat dealer Borusan Makina & Guc Sistemler of Turkey.
Mr. İlker Özgür DOĞRUÖZ, head of Marine Segment, Borusan, said:
The integrated solutions of both systems by Caterpillar is the primary advantage of purchasing all related equipment from one responsible party. Because the solutions come IMO Certified from the factory they require no on-site emissions testing, and finally Caterpillar’s world class aftermarket product support will ensure continued success
