Accommodating 16 people including spill response personnel in two single, five double and one quadruple berth staterooms, remaining accommodation spacing are situated with a galley and pantry with cold storage, ship's office and decontamination station.

Responsible for the design of this ves- sel series is Seattle-based naval architec- tural firm Guido Perla & Associates (GPA). who took the responsibility for regulatory compliance by entering plans to ABS for U.S. and International Ton- nage Certificates. The firm's engineers worked to perform the structural and mechanical calculations, electronic load analysis, and short circuit analysis and drew up a fire and safety plan. GPA engineers also created composite draw- ings with machinery and wiring layouts and piping routing for the equipment, ensuring that construction and opera- tional maintainability was free of inter- ference.

Prior to construction, an automated layout of the vessel confirmed mechani- cal capability, while ensuring a working view of towing operations from the pilothouse. This 3-D computer model of the complete design was formulated using the latest releases of AutoCAD,

Rhino, AccuRender, as well as GPA- developed software. Exporting this computerized information to GPA's 40- station network allowed for develop- ment of hull scientific, structural, mechanical and electrical designs. The company provided lines fairing, lofting and numerical control NC tapes for automated burning and marking of indi- vidual parts.

Robert Allan Design To Be Built

For Brusco

Brusco Tug & Barge, Inc. of

Longview, Wash, has awarded of the construction contract for a new 78 ft. (23.8 m) Z-drive tug to Diversified

Marine, Inc. of Portland, Oregon. This new tug is the seventh in the series of the ASD 23/35 high-performance, low- manning tug design developed by

Robert Allan Ltd.. and incorporates sev- eral new features reflected in the ongo- ing development of this class of modern high-performance ship assist tug.

The most significant change to the design is the increase in power installed in this tug design since its initial devel- opment over 20 years ago. The tug has been increased to provide greater stabil- ity, and the tendering system has changed significantly to reflect both the higher power, and changes in fender and hawser technologies.

Powered by two Detroit Diesel Model 12 V4000 electronically-controlled diesel engines, each rated at 1,800-bhp driving Ulstein Model 1350H Z-drives, the tug is equipped with a hydraulic towing winch supplied by Markey

Machinery, which has a "render recov- er" feature.

The tug is scheduled for delivery dur- ing the fourth quarter of 2000. at which time it will be put to work in Port Huen- eme, Calif.
