This sea-going pusher tug is a multipurpose vessel.
Purpose:
-Convoying of separate barges, towing trains, and non-self-propelled vessels in constrained waters (canal locks, river bends and etc.);
-Push-towing operations (a string of non-self-propelled barges) in В1, В2, В3 navigation areas within inland waterways of Ukraine for the following barge projects:
NBL-90 (DWT 4400) in mode “pusher + one barge in wake”;
NBL-91 (DWT 3000) in mode “pusher + one barge in wake”;
В2000 (DWT 2000) in modes “pusher + two barges in wake” and “pusher + two barges alongside”.
-Sea towing by the hook for the following barge projects:
NBL-90 (DWT 4400) in mode “pusher + one barge in wake”;
NBL-91 (DWT 3000) in mode “pusher + one barge in wake”.
-Building a tow of several barges and mooring operations for barges in the harbour waters;
-Supply of electric power to push-towed barges for their deck equipment, hatch covers and navigation lights operation;
-Supply of water to push-towed barges for the fire main operation and anchor chain washing.
A balance between main particulars, pull characteristics and design allow the vessel to work effectively both in constrained harbour waters and on the high seas.
