As a part of global Covid-19 precautions an isolation/temporary quarantine capability has been created on a Robert Allan Ltd (RAL) designed tug, owned and operated by Tianjin Port.

A 20ft container has been added to the aft deck of the Jin Gang Lun 32. Fitted with air conditioning, the container has been fitted out with basic living facilities including a sofa, potable water, WC, safety appliances, medical kit, two receptacles for medical emergency equipment, etc. Large watertight windows have been included in the renovated container.
