Rolls-Royce to supply tug systems

Rolls-Royce has signed a memorandum of understanding with Drydocks World Dubai to provide systems for Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) powered tugs for the Middle East market.

The tugs, to be designed by the Drydocks World in-house design team, will incorporate a range of power and propulsion equipment from Rolls-Royce, including Bergen medium speed gas engines.

The world’s first LNG powered cargo ship, also powered by Rolls-Royce, entered service in Norway last year.
