Jensen wins tug design job

October 21 - Crowley Maritime Corporation's naval architecture and marine engineering company, Jensen Maritime, has been selected to provide designs for two new tugboats for Ice Floe (dba Nichols Brothers Boat Builders) and Kirby Offshore Marine.

The two 120 ft (36.5 m) long by 35 ft (10.6 m) wide tugs, which will be used for towing operations, will be powered by two Caterpillar engines with Reintjes reduction gears turning two NautiCAN fixed-pitch propellers with fixed nozzles.

Keels will be laid for both vessels in the last quarter of 2015, with complete vessel delivery scheduled for May and November 2017. Both vessels will be fully classed by ABS and compliant with the U.S. Coast Guard.
