Ranked among the biggest ship repair yards in the world.
To assist in the safe and smooth berthing and unberthing of all types of vessels, ODC provides tug/towage services at the shipyard using tugboats equipped with state-of-the-art technology as well as extremely experienced crews to perform these tug/towage services in a safe and reliable manner.
The fleet consists of three pupose-built tugboats each powered by a pair of air-started Niigata 6L26HLX diesel engines, each developing 1800bhp at 750 rpm. The engines drive Niigata ZP-21 azimuthing thrusters turning fixed pitch propellers within nozzles to ensure high maneuverability and a strong bollard pull. The rear mounted thrusters are driven by a cardan shaft arrangement and independently provide full thrust in any direction.
