FAIRPLAY XI christened in Rotterdam

| |

On a very sunny Friday afternoon on July 10th and in the presence of five company tugs with a spectacular show, the new Fairplay's tractor tug Fairplay XI was christened at the Wilhelmina pier in Rotterdam (see video). Sponsor lady of the tug Mrs Petra Resenhoeft, spouse of Wulf Resenhoeft of Fairplay Hamburg, threw the bottle of champagne and wished the tug and her crew a good and safe voyage. The Fairplay XI is unique thanks to its three engines, one of which is electric, with which both the fuel consumption as well as the maintenance can be reduced. Wulf Resenhoeft told: basically the tug sails on its electric motor only, unless a job requires that the other engines be turned on. She is world's first environment friendly emission Tier 3 tug. In addition, the tug has a bollard pull of 70 up to 90 tons and she is one of the safest in its class.
The operation area of the FAIRPLAY XI will be the Port of Rotterdam, as is her sister, FAIRPLAY IX.
