Today we have the anchor-handling tug Taurus (IMO: 9344978, Port of Registry: St. John's, Antigua & Barbuda) featuring as the Ship of the Day. The Taurus is 58 metres long, about 15 metres wide and has a gross tonnage of 1767. The vessel's two MAN B&W 14V32/40 engines deliver a maximum output of 14,000 kW at 750 rpm, which ensures a bollard pull of 207 tons and a maximum speed of 16 knots. Furthermore the vessel is equipped with two 400 KW bowthrusters and one 400 KW sternthruster. She provides accomodation to 21 persons in 16 cabins. The Taurus was built in 2007 at M├╝tzelfeldt Yard, Cuxhaven and is owned by Harms Offshore, Hamburg, Germany.

The Taurus arrived this morning at the Parkkade, Rotterdam.
