Deutz MWM Diesels To Power Four Harbor Tugs For Mexico

Astilleros Unidos de Mazatlan, S.A. de C.V. (AUMAZ) in Mazatlan, Mexico, recently delivered the tug Pemex LI (51) to the Mexican oil company Pemex. The vessel is the first of four harbor tugs powered with propulsion and gensets supplied by Deutz MWM.

Main propulsion for the tug is provided by twin V8 diesels in the 628 series, each with 1,180 hp (1,600 kw) at 1,000 rpm. Both generating sets are driven by Deutz MWM 226 series diesels.

The Pemex Ll, based on a design by Muetzelfedtwerft in Cuxhaven, will be used in the port of Topolobampo.

The entire imported propulsion package, including engines, twin Schottel rudder-props, and related equipment, was supplied from Germany.

The remaining three tugs from this new generation will be delivered by 1991. This will bring to 11 the number of similarly designed tugs operating in Mexico's harbors with Deutz MWM propulsion and generating diesel engines.
