Caterpillar power for Teekay Offshore
All four vessels will be equipped with 2x AEM shaft generators rated at 3150 ekW @ 1200 rpm and will have two Cat BCP1330F main propellers, two BTT625 tunnel thrusters and two BTT419 tunnel thrusters
Caterpillar Marine will be providing complete propulsion solutions for four new ocean-going towing vessels designed by Ulstein Design and Solutions.
Each vessel will have 4x 9 M 32 C propulsion engines, rated at 4500 bkW @ 600 rpm. Also onboard each vessel will be 3x Cat C32 auxiliary generator sets rated at 940 ekW @ 1800 rpm as well as 1x Cat C9 generator set to provide emergency power.
Alexander Kohse, Caterpillar Marine global offshore segment manager, said: “This remarkable project is a milestone achievement for Caterpillar Marine as it represents to the global marine industry what we are capable of as a comprehensive provider of not only power solutions but propulsion systems.”
Cat BCP controllable-pitch main propellers have been specifically designed and developed for heavy-duty applications with the pitch setting hydraulic servo cylinder in the hub – apparently the first hub system in the shipbuilding industry where the moisture content is constantly checked, protecting the entire propeller system as well as the environment.

Designed to tow large structures such as offshore drilling rigs, the Ulstein SX157 designed vessels with 300-ton bollard pull will be capable of operating at full loads for 45 days without refueling.
Upon completion the vessels will be owned and operated by ALP Maritime Services, which was recently acquired by Teekay Offshore Services.
