Project 16609 tugs from Pella Shipyard bear many similarities to other standard ASD ship-handling tugs and it is easy to overlook what Pella describe as the "distinguishing features" of this class of tug which include: high manoeuvrability; high level of automation and centralisation of control ensuring security and comfort of piloting; operational reliability also in severe ice conditions; all-round view from the wheelhouse; installation of equipment of world leading manufacturers; comfortable compartments for work and rest and ease of operation and finally high economic efficiency.
