SMIT AMSTERDAM
Tugboat

The development of the enormous sized tankers and bulk carriers in the early 1970s suddenly made all the tugboats of that generation obsolete. 

In January 1974, the directors of Smit International in Rotterdam decided to answer the industry calls with two super tugs.  One of these two strongest operating tugs in the world was Smit Rotterdam.  Her four 9-cylinder diesel engines sported 22,000 Indicator Horse Power!  Her total displacement was 2,273 tons.  Length 74.38 m, width 15.78 m, depth 7.60 m. 

April 1975, the “Smit Rotterdam” was operational and its first task was to tow the 350,000 tons production platform “BERYL-A” from Stavanger, Norway to the North Sea.  The job was performed jointly with the Tug “Noordzee” (11,000 HP), Bugsier tugs “Wotan and “Atlantic”, each 12,.500 HP, and the “Pacific” 10,000 HP. In total, 42,000 HP was pulling the “BERYL-A” to the final destination.
