Middle East first for Bestobell


Bestobell Marine, part of the President Engineering Group (PEGL), has received a major new order from Wärtsilä Fuel Gas Handling Division (FGH), to supply the Middle East’s first LNG (liquefied natural gas) fuelled harbour tug.

The order will see Bestobell Marine supply a complete set of cryogenic globe valves to be fitted in Wärtsilä’s LNG-Pac fuel gas systems for its new harbour tug design which will be built at Dubai Drydocks. The new tug will use LNG as the primary fuel and will be operated by Dubai Maritime City.

Duncan Gaskin, Sales Director of Bestobell Marine, said, “We are delighted to be working with Wärtsilä to supply valves to the Middle East’s first LNG fuelled harbour tug. An increasing number of vessels are being built using LNG as their primary fuel which presents great opportunities for our cryogenic valves.”

United Arab Emirates-based TASNEEF, the Class Society for the project, will provide classification and advisory services for the LNG fuel project. Bestobell Marine’s extensive experience in dealing with a variety of Class Societies will be beneficial in meeting these requirements.
