Foss Maritime's Third Arctic Class Ocean Tug is Nearly Complete
Dynamic videos show construction of the Nicole Foss
RAINIER, Ore., Feb. 17, 2017 - Foss Maritime has released two time-lapse videos of the construction of the third of three state-of-the-art Arctic Class tugs being built at the Rainier, OR. shipyard. The tug is expected to enter service later this year.
A second video shows construction through the transportation of the Hull - which has Nautican's high efficiency nozzle and rudder assembly, driven through a set of Reintjes reduction gears - to Vancouver, Washington to have a Markey Machinery tow winch installed, before returning to Rainier for her wheelhouse installation.
The videos are available on the Foss YouTube channel, or on the Foss website, with continuing updates and photography available via inquiry, or on social media at Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.
