Two new Voith Water Tractors each are currently being built for the port authorities of Alexandria and Damietta. Voith Turbo Marine supplies the propulsion components for these four vessels.

The northern Egyptian metropolis Alexandria with its population of 4 million is located directly on the western end of the Nile delta. Its port is among the most important trade ports in the region. Approximately 60 percent of all Egyptian imports and exports are handled here. The Alexandria port authority has contracted with the Egyptian Shipbuilding and Repair shipyard to provide two new Voith Water Tractors.

The new vessels are designed to be equipped with two 28R5/234-2 Voith Schneider Propellers with a power output of 1920 kW each. In addition, Voith will deliver 1330 DTL turbo couplings as well as an SBG 140 bow tooth coupling for the vessels. The VWT are identical in construction, measure 32 meters in length, have a width of 11.5 meters and a draught of 3.2 meters. Their maximum speed is 13 knots. With their bollard pull of 55 tons, they are well equipped for their tasks both within the port as well as on the Suez Canal. Both VWT will be put into service in spring 2011.

The port authority of Damietta, a city located a little further east in the Nile delta, close to Port Said, has also ordered two Voith Water Tractors from the Egyptian shipyard Timsah Shipbuilding. The Voith Turbo components VSP, bow tooth coupling and turbo coupling are identical on all vessels; however the Voith Water Tractors for Damietta differ in terms of their outer dimensions.

They are 35 meters long, 11 meters wide and, with 2.65 meters, have a smaller draught. Both in terms of their maximum speed of 13 knots as well as in their bollard pull of 55 tons, they are identical to the port tugs for Alexandria. These two vessels will also be put into service in the port of Damietta in spring 2011.

Voith Turbo (voithturbo.com), the specialist for hydrodynamic drive, coupling and braking systems for road, rail and industrial applications, as well as for ship propulsion systems, is a Group Division of Voith AG.

Voith (voith.com) is setting the standard in the paper, energy, mobility, and service markets.
