Project description

  • NAME : Tuktu, Qavvik, Uugaq et Tulugaq
  • BOAT TYPE : Tugboats
  • DELIVERY : 2020
  • SERVICES USED : Architecture | Construction

Tuktu, Qavvik, Uugaq, and Tulugaq are a set of identical tugs custom designed to pull barges in the Arctic Ocean, largely for the purpose of delivering goods to northern villages.

Small, powerful, and agile vessels

The tugs Tuktu (“caribou”), Qavvik (“wolverine”), Uugaq (“cod”), and Tulugaq (“crow”) are the latest in a series of 11 outstanding vessels delivered to our client NEAS Inc.

Built using the same model as those delivered in 2017 and 2019, these utility vessels have a flat-bottom structure, shallow draft, and very powerful engines that allow them to sail along rivers with ease.

Ever since the Qimu was built in 2006, we have put a lot of energy into building tugs that meet very specific needs. We are very proud of the fact that we delivered them on time and within budget.
