Heavy-duty push and pull job16/02/2013
The company Charleston Heavy Lift took on the job using three tugboats and a barge, all powered by Volvo Penta.
“Island Tide” and “Island Pilot” was powered by twin D16 engines and “Royal Engineer” by twin TAMD165. Even the crane-carrier barge was powered by Volvo Penta – a D9 industrial engine. The whole contract, which also included the move of WW2 destroyer USS Laffey, was completed with Volvo Penta power.
