Escorting the tanker STEN EMBLA up river this morning, were both of Clyde Marine's Damen Stan Tugs, BATTLER and BRUISER. The latter was delivered to the company in June 2007 from the Dutch tug-builder for use on the river and in particular for handling tanker traffic. With an overall length of 19.33 metres, BRUISSER manages to achieve a bollard pull of almost 28 tons, and is driven by two Caterpillar engines producing 2,000 bhp. Further information about her can be read on this data sheet from her builders, or a similar one supplied by her owners.
