It replaces the famous STu 2909 of which almost 50 tugs were built

After recently undergoing successful trials, she has proved a comfortable tug, with low noise and vibration levels and she has excellent sailing and manoeuvring characteristics. A bollard pull of 70 tonnes and speed of 13.1 knots were achieved during trials.
