Ice Breaking Tugs
« on: January 08, 2009, 08:21:57 »
Here's a shot of the AHTS tug 'Arctic Kalvik'.
With class 4 ice-breaking capabilities and 23,300bhp and 220 tons of bollard pull, she and her sister-ship, the 'Terry Fox', (now on long-term charter with the Canadian Coast Guard), are very impresive ships indeed. :)

A smaller but versatile AHTS Tug is the 12,855bhp 'Sir Wilfred Grenfell', also working hard on the Canadian East Coast, for the Coast Guard.

The 'Talagy' used to be called the 'Canmar Kigoriak', I believe.
