The Carlo Martello

Where do you suppose it's going?

Did you know it has its own press release online?

On 27th June 2009 the 8,000KW tug vessel named "Carlo Martello" has been delivered to Augustea Imprese Marittime e di Salvataggi Spa, by the shipyard Rosetti Marino, Ravenna, Italy.

The vessel is the twin of the tug Carlo Magno, so far the flagship of the deep-sea tug fleet. The vessel has the innovative "UT 514 L", developed specifically by Rolls Royce to meet the precise requirements of the company, it runs on heavy fuel oil, a solution that turned out to be particularly competitive in the case of the Carlo Magno.

The Carlo Martello has a power of 12,000 BHP, a bollard pull of around 150 tons and a speed of over 15 knots. The vessel is equipped with R.I.N.A. Fire Fighting 1, with an autoprotection system which can be used for salvage services.

Get to work, buddy.
