Sanmar Shipyards has sold another of its hugely popular multi-purpose technologically advanced Bogacay Class tugboats, this time to fellow Turkish company Eren Energy.

Built in 2018 at Sanmar’s state-of-the-art purpose-built Altinova Shipyard, Bogacay XXXlll is an example of the exclusive to Sanmar RAmparts 2400SX design from Canadian naval architects Robert Allan Ltd.

The modern twin Z-drive, diesel powered tug has been designed for maximum efficiency in the performance of ship-handling duties for sea going ships.

Eren Energy is part of the Istanbul-headquartered conglomerate Eren Holding, which has business interests in paper, packaging, cement, energy, retail, textile, tourism and ports, including Eren Port on Turkey’s Black Sea coast.

Bogacay XXXlll is the third tugboat that Sanmar has sold to Eren Energy. The tug has an overall length of 24.4m and a moulded beam of 11.25m. Its two main engines each produce 1,765kW of power to give the vessel a bollard pull of 60 tonnes.

Bogacay XXXIII comes with Class 1 fire-fighting capability and can achieve a free running speed of 13 knots. It has a fuel capacity of 74.2m3.

Cem Seven, President of Sanmar said: “It is always pleasing when an existing customer returns to do more business with us. I am delighted that Eren Energy have once again come to Sanmar to meet their operational needs. Bogacay XXXlll is an excellent example of one of our range of our modern industry-leading tugboats.”
