Halter Marine, Inc. of New
Orleans, La., recently delivered the Moku Pahu, a 113-foot 6-inch
Catug, to the California and Ha- waiian Sugar Co. of San Fran- cisco, Calif.
A Catug is the catamaran style propulsion unit in an integrated tug/barge system. When mated to its barge, the HSTC-1 built by
Bath Iron Works, Bath, Maine, the two units have an overall length of 643 feet.
The Moku Pahu has an 84-foot beam and 39-foot depth. She is powered by two Colt Pielstick 14PC2V400 engines developing a total of 14,000 bhp. They drive two 18-foot diameter four-bladed propellers through Lufkin re- verse/reduction gears with a ra- tio of 5.28:1. The combined unit displaces 30,000 tons loaded, and has a cargo capacity of 1,420,000 cubic feet.
On her first voyage from Ha- waii to San Francisco she trans- ported the largest single load of sugar ever delivered from the is- lands to the mainland. The inte- grated tug-barge unit is now in regular operation between Hawaii and the U.S. West Coast.
The vessel's fuel oil tanks hold 75,667 gallons of heavy fuel or 71,684 gallons of diesel fuel. Lube oil capacity is 19,252 gallons, fresh water capacity is 39,321 gallons, and ballast water capac- ity is 72,431 gallons.
