New NYPA Tug Under Construction

Posted by Greg Beers

In 2013, Bristol Harbor Group, Inc. was awarded a contract by the New York Power Authority (NYPA) to engineer, design and perform construction supervision support services for two new tug vessels. The tugs will be used primarily for deployment, retrieval and maintenance of an ice boom annually installed near the outlet of Lake Erie to help protect NYPA’s hydroelectric plant intakes on the Niagara River from heavy ice flows. The vessels are designed to comply with proposed Subchapter M of Title 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations for inspected towing vessels. One of the tugs is currently under construction and is visited on a regular basis by BHGI for surveying as seen in the pictures attached to this post.
