The Haisea Kermode, a powerful LNG duel-fuel tugboat designed for harbour and escort services in an environmentally sensitive region, can run on either diesel or liquefied natural gas (LNG) and complies with IMO Tier III emissions standards thanks to its diesel exhaust after-treatment system. Based on the RAstar 4000 DF design from Robert Allan Ltd., the tugboat boasts a bollard pull of over 100 tonnes. The tug is 40.2 m in length, with a 16 m beam and maximum draft of 7.1 m, and can generate indirect escort forces of approximately 200 tonnes when coupled with its sister tug, the Haisea Warrior. This LNG-powered vessel is part of a series intended for LNG Canada’s new export facility in Kitimat, British Columbia, contributing to emissions reduction in the marine industry.
