The 50-tonne bollard pull PSA Aspen performed her first towage operation in the port of Singapore assisting a vessel to unberth.
The dual-fuel tug can operate using both diesel and LNG as fuel and is the first of two such tugs ordered by PSA Marine. A second tug PSA Oak will join PSA Marine’s fleet in October this year.
Peter Chew, managing director of PSA Marine, said, “The valuable knowledge and hands-on experience on LNG operations will enable us to contribute towards the ongoing industry-wide discussions on LNG bunkering as well as evaluate potential business opportunities in this space.”
