The power and automation corporation will supply two Wärtsilä 20DF dual-fuel engines operating mostly on LNG, together with its LNGPac fuel storage and supply system, steerable thrusters, and the Wärtsilä ProTouch control system. The 28m-long tug, with a bollard pull of 50 tonnes, is due for delivery in mid-2019 when it will start working in the port of Singapore.
