FIRST KOTUG E-PUSHER TYPE M MOUNTED AT PADMOS SHIPYARD.
Last week marked a highlight in the construction of the Kotug E-Pusher type M: mounting the modular built steel frame, including the two electric azipods of 300 kW each and the wheelhouse on the PE modular floating bodies by Padmos Shipyard in Stellendam:
Followed by her launch. There she is!:
The next step will be mounting the accommodation and battery pack, and electronic control unit.
These pictures clearly demonstrate the unique design according to the principle of circular building: the vessel has an eternal lifespan because every single part can be replaced, adjusted or removed, including the energy source. We can’t wait to have the first zero-emission set-up of this kind in the world in operation for our customer Cargill in Q2!
