Hybrid Eddy Tug 24-75
After a trial with Eddy I, Iskes IJmuiden decided to continue with the Eddy concept. Since then the Telstar has been developed in cooperation with Holland Shipyards.
Holland Shipyards has completed the total construction of this unique tugboat in Hardinxveld-Giessendam. The tug is named after IJmuiden’s football club and is used in Amsterdam and IJmuiden for assisting towage with the locks.
During the developmentperiod of the Telstar we spent a lot of time on developing details. Although the Telstar is 6 meters shorter than the Eddy I, he has 10bp extra power.
