ADULIS is 25.86m long, powered by two Cummins engines totalling 1,402kW which, coupled to Aquamaster US901/2250 azimuth thruster, gave a trials performance of 23 tonnes bollard pull ahead, 22 tonnes astern and a free running speed of 11.5 knots. The tug is equipped for firefighting and salvage. The article includes a general arrangement plan.
