The Pawlina was built as an ASD 3111®. This is a special development from the DAMEN Shipyard.
Some years ago DAMEN started to build standardised tugboats. This ASD has two Rolls-Royce Aquamaster US255 thrusters at the stern.
Along the keel there is a skeg to enhance the steering forces in the escort mode. The propellers have a diameter of 2,600 mm.
The two thrusters are driven by a pair of Caterpillar 3516B TA HD/D engines. Each engine develops a total of 2,800 bhp. These
engines give the Pawlina a speed of 13.4 knots ahead and 13.1 knots astern, with a bollard pull of 67.1 ton(m) ahead and 62.5 ton(m)
astern. The tank capacities are: fuel oil 93.2 m3, fresh water 28.8 m3, foam 12.7 m3 and water ballast 84.0 m3.
On the afterdeck between the base of the funnels a 70 t Mampaey towing hook is fitted.
Behind the towing hook is a towing bollard to guide the towing line. On the starboard side, next to the towing hook is a
Ridderinkhof capstan with a pull of 5 ton(m) and a hauling speed of 15m/min. Near the port funnel, a davit is fitted to handle
the Narwhal inflatable.
The forecastle deck is raised in comparison to the working deck. On this deck
is a combined anchor and towing winch made by Ridderinkhof. This double drum winch has a hauling force of 50 ton(m). Each of
the two anchors has a weight of 427.5 kg. Forward of the winch you find the huge towing bollard.
On the bridgedeck you will only find the two life rafts. At the fore end of the deck
house the control panel for the bow winch is fitted. A second control panel is located in the wheelhouse. On the portside of
the wheelhouse a small ladder leads to the top deck. On the starboard side is the access to the electronic compartment.
Also on the starboard, in front of the funnel, is the supply pipe for the FiFi.
At the fore end of the top deck a magnetic compass, the ships horn and a searchlight are fitted. At the aft
end are the two SKUM-FiFi-Monitors and a second searchlight directed aft. The mounted radar was supplied by Furuno.
In the deck house at main deck level, is the captain's cabin, the chief engineer's cabin, galley and
toilet. Below the main deck, but above the waterline, are two 2-bed cabins for the crew. Between these cabins are toilets.
The office, the engineer's workshop and the dry store are located at the same level.
