Crowley recently christened the eWolf, the first all-electric ship assist harbour tugboat for the US. Operating with zero emissions and employing sustainable technology, the eWolf embodies Crowley’s commitment to sustainability and innovation. With 70 tons of bollard pull, it surpasses its conventional counterparts in power while integrating advanced safety features and a cutting-edge electrical package for battery energy storage by ABB. Supported by a shoreside microgrid charging station, the eWolf can operate daily at full capacity on electricity, contributing to decarbonization efforts at the Port of San Diego. This achievement reflects Crowley’s dedication to advancing marine services with environmental stewardship at its core.
