EXCEPTIONAL NOISE LIMITATION AND OPERATIONAL FEATURES OF 40 TON-PULL ICEBREAKER/TUG

The new icebreaking harbor/coastal and buoy positioning tug DUNKER, built in the UK for a Swedish owner and described in this article, is one of the most remarkable high technology tugs yet built. The shipbuilder, owner and various specialists have combined their efforts to meet the especially stringent requirements of the Swedish unions and the Swedish Shipping Inspectorate to reduce noise and vibration to a minimum and to provide comfortable living and working conditions for the crew of three, who will have to operate in what can at times be extreme weather conditions.
