Turkey’s Sanmar Shipyards books another Bogacay Class sale
Sanmar Shipyards sold another of its highly successful technologically advanced multi-purpose Bogacay Class tugboats, this time to fellow Turkish Eren Energy company.
Designed in 2018 at the state-of-the-art purpose-built Altinova Shipyard in Sanmar, Bogacay XXXlll is an example of Canadian naval architect Robert Allan Ltd's unique Sanmar RAmparts 2400SX architecture.
The new, diesel-powered twin Z-drive tug has been designed for maximum efficiency in the performance of ship handling tasks for sea-going vessels.
The third tugboat that Sanmar has sold to Eren Energy is Bogacay XXXlll. The tug has an overall length of 24.4m and an 11.25m moulded beam. In order to give the vessel a bollard pull of 60 tonnes, its two main engines each generate 1,765kW of power.
Bogacay XXXIII comes with fire-fighting capabilities of Class 1 and a free running speed of 13 knots can be achieved. It has a 74.2m3 fuel capacity.
“It is always pleasing when an existing customer returns to do more business with us. I am delighted that Eren Energy have once again come to Sanmar to meet their operational needs. Bogacay XXXlll is an excellent example of one of our range of our modern industry-leading tugboats,” stated Cem Seven, President of Sanmar
