RAL TO DESIGN TUG FOR ROYAL THAI NAVY

Friday, June 25, 2021 

Robert Allan Ltd (RAL) of Canada has signed a contract with Asian Marine Services Public Company Limited (ASIMAR) of Thailand for the design of a RAmparts 3200-SD tugboat for the Royal Thai Navy.

The RAmparts series of tugs is said to be a proven, successful series of Z-drive tug designs with more than 180 RAmparts 3200 tugs having been built to date. Design features of the RAmparts 3200 tug designs include high speed, good stability and sea keeping, enhanced astern performance and manoeuvrability that enable the vessels to successfully fulfil push and tow missions. The Royal Thai Navy currently operates two RAmparts 3200 tugs, and this third RAmparts 3200 tugboat will, similar to the previous two tugs, have approximately 55t Bollard Pull and a speed of over 12 knots.

This tug will support fire-fighting missions with a 2,400m3/hr Fi-Fi pump with fire monitors capable of 120m throw distance and oil spill recovery missions can be accomplished with DESMI oil spill response solutions and environmental friendly – biological formular oil dispersant bioQ.

This cooperation between RAL and ASIMAR is expected to open additional opportunities in the future for the Thai shipbuilding industry to learn and develop new knowledge in ship design and construction. ASIMAR is an international shipyard located in Thailand which has been in operation since 1981.
