Hongkong Salvage & Towage, a division of HUD Group, has taken delivery of two 6,500 BHP new-built tugs, Mai Po and Sung Kong, which entered service in the second quarter of 2019. Designed by naval architect Robert Allan Ltd. and built by Cheoy Lee Shipyards, Mai Po and Sung Kong are the most powerful tugs on Hong Kong Harbour. With service speeds of 13.64 knots and a maximum bollard pull of 88.2 tonnes, they will be used for berthing ultra-large vessels, ocean towage, fire-fighting and salvage operations and are equipped with a number of features to enhance navigational safety and support operations in tough conditions, including render recovery winch, liquefied natural gas detection system and explosion-proof lighting.
