Unveiling Z-Tech® Exclusive Design Edition

November 15, 2017

With the re-styling of the deckhouse and wheelhouse, PSA Marine (Pte) Ltd and Robert Allan Ltd. once again collaborated and jointly unveiled the Z-Tech® Exclusive Design Edition. Cheoy Lee was awarded with two contracts for the construction of three Z-Tech® Exclusive Design Edition 5000 tugs for PSA Marine (Pte) Ltd of Singapore and South China Towing Co. Ltd. of Hong Kong. The building of these Exclusive Design Edition tugs will be complete in later 2018. The hull form and deck layout are kept essentially the same and the Z-Tech® Exclusive Design Edition 5000 tugs will maintain all features of the original concept which combines advantages of modern ASD and tractor tug designs. As the Z-Tech® concept development partner, PSA Marine currently operates 12 Z-Tech® tugs in its fleet. South China Towing Co. Ltd., a joint venture company of PSA Marine (Pte) Ltd., Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Limited, and Tokyo Kisen Co. Ltd., is a new member of the Z-Tech® club.

The Main Particulars of the Z-Tech® Exclusive Design Edition 5000 tugs are:

  • Length Overall: 27.40 m
  • Beam: 11.50 m
  • Depth: 5.03 m
  • Bollard Pull: 50 tonnes

Since Indee and Pardoo entered operation in 2004, the concept has been widely accepted around the world. More than 80 Z-Tech® tugs are in service or under construction without counting those designed by others following the Z-Tech® concept.
