Uzmar Shipyard and Robert Allen signed an agreement to design and build a new series of tractors running on methanol. Exclusively for Uzmar, the ships will be a new generation of lower-emission tugs that customers currently require to meet a wide range of CO2 reduction targets.

The new series of vessels will benefit from improved energy efficiency, in addition to generating a significant amount of CO2 emission savings each year. Methanol-powered ships will range in length from 26 m to 32 m and will include one tug design.

The agreement, signed by Ahmet Noyan Altug, CEO of Uzmar, and Mike Fitzpatrick, CEO of Robert Allen, covers four new designs. The name of the series of tractors powered by methanol will be revealed by the duo at a later stage. Uzmar plans to replace its entire fleet of tugs with alternative environmentally friendly new buildings.

“It’s an exciting step forward for us to sign these new design contracts with Uzmar,” said Robert Allen, Fitzpatrick’s chief executive. “The close collaboration between Robert Allen and Uzmar, which has been developed over more than 25 years of working together, facilitates the effective transfer of knowledge between our engineering teams. I am confident that we will successfully implement these important projects, as we have done many times together in the past. “

“According to our study, which has been going on for more than five years, our team believes that in the context of alternative fossil fuels, the most applicable and effective choice for tractors is methanol,” said Uzmar CEO Ahmet Noyan Altug. “With our long-standing friendship and mutual understanding with Robert Allen, we have always overcome challenging projects with great success. Signing contracts for this new methanol-powered design series, exclusive to Uzmar, is a step into a new era for all of us. Our goal is to start building the tractors in the last quarter of 2022 and we will reveal the specifications in the coming days. “
