Port Of Auckland Orders World First Full-Size Electric Tug

Most of the electrification efforts are currently put into cars, but there is a huge appetite to electrify ships too.

Ports of Auckland in New Zealand since 2016 has been working on the idea of an electric tug. As there were no such products on the market, Dutch company Damen Shipyards decided to develop a full-size, 70-tonne bollard pull, electric tug. The first such unit, called Damen RSD-E Tug 2513, will be delivered to Ports of Auckland in 2021.


Level 3.2
