Client: Iskes Towage and Salvage
Type Ship: Hybrid Harbour Tug
The EDDY 24 is a compact harbour tug, based on the typical EDDY tug features, but has been adjusted to suit the operational requirements of Iskes in the Amsterdam-IJmuiden port. This means that: the over-all thickness of the hull has been increased, rub-rails were fitted on waterline level to avoid paint damage during lock operations, an additional fender has been fitted mid-ship on the waterline for more contact area during sideways pushing, the coolers can be dropped down, instead of pulled up, and overall finishing levels are extremely high.
The EDDY 24-75 incorporates a similar diesel-direct/diesel-electric hybrid propulsion system as is offered as standard on the EDDY 30 models. This setup has proven to be extremely successful, realizing remarkable savings in both fuel and maintenance costs while it allows for high-precision manoeuvring and improved crew comfort.
