New offshore vessel being acquired by Atlantic Towing

June 17, 2019

Atlantic Towing Limited has announced the purchase of a platform supply vessel (PSV), the Atlantic Harrier, for delivery in April 2020. The vessel possesses an Ice Class 1B notation and is designed to withstand the harsh operating conditions of both the North Atlantic and the North Sea.

Equipped with a hybrid battery-diesel-electric propulsion package, contra-rotating propulsion drives, Clean Design notation, and Tier III engines, the Atlantic Harrier will leverage 650-kilowatts of installed battery power to fully optimize vessel operating modes to significantly reduce fuel consumption.
