We made it!
These April days we did start-up and sea-trials of the “new” “Volvo Penta D16MH/MG518-1” set-up.
The NEW – the tugboat of the well-known project No. 570 A, now got TWICE BIGGER bollard pull force, speed over 10 knots – with less fuel consumption now and longer “life” in the future!
Yes – engine and reverse gear are not new – but this is a “pilot” project, and we believe – it will create a pipeline of repowering these “popular” tugboats in Ukraine.
Welcome to the World of Volvo Penta Power!
