Canadian Naval Architecture firm Robert Allan Ltd (RAL) says that the new 'Jingang Lun 31' and 'Jingang Lun 32', constructed by Zhenjiang Shipyard of China, have recently been launched.

The two sister vessels were designed by RAL for service at Tianjin Port, at Bohai Bay, China and will be used in a combined pilotage and towing service. The senior management of the Port’s towing division attended the launch ceremony and expressed satisfaction with the well-designed hull form, appearance and overall outfitting and condition of the two vessels.

The two vessels will comply with China Classification Society (CCS) requirements for intelligent ship (i-ship) notation, and are classed to notation CSAD, Tug, Greater Coastal Service, Ice Class B, CSMD, AUT-0.

Principal particulars of this new design are: length oa 40.0m, Beam, moulded 11.0m, Depth, moulded (hull) 5.12m, Maximum Draught 4.01m.

The design service speed required is in excess of 14 knots and the accommodation for a crew of 10 plus pilots requires a longer hull than normally used for a pure towing vessel design.
