 VSP Tug ASHDOD 1:50


The new and innovative VectRA 3000 Class Tug is a high performance VSP tractor tug developed by Robert Allan Ltd in close co-operation with Turkish shipbuilder Sanmar and Voith Turbo Propulsion. The tug is designed for maximum efficiency in towing, harbour handling and escorting large vessels. Performance was verified at the beginning of the design cycle with extensive modelling tests. The unique propulsion arrangement consists of high-speed diesel engines connected to the VSPs via reduction gears with integrated clutches. With a bollard pull of 73.5 tonnes, the VectRA 3000 can generate a steering force of more than 100 tonnes. In addition, the design has fire-fighting and oil recovery functions.

The first vessel in the series, the M/T Ares, later ARIE A, which was built in 2016 for Italian tug owner Tripmare S.p.A., was successfully commissioned at Sanmar's new Altinova shipyard in February 2016.
The second VSP tug ASHDOD was completed in 2018 and is currently in operation in ASHDOD.

The third VSP tug EITAN was built in 2021 and is also currently in service in ASHDOD.
