TUGS DESIGNED WITH AN ENVIRONMENTAL FOCUS.
Foss Maritime built three Arctic Class tugboats at its Rainier Shipyard to serve the oil and gas industries in Alaska and beyond. Foss engaged Glosten to execute this new design from concept through detailed production design. ABS D0 Ice Class rules and domestic tonnage requirements drove complex structural arrangements and piping systems. The challenge was to improve operational and environmental performance while reducing routine maintenance.
