SEATTLE, Washington -- Smith Berger Marine has delivered a towing pin stern roller set to Baydelta Maritime for installation on the Bollard Pull tug Delta Cathryn, which is currently under construction at Nichols Brothers Boatbuilders. The towing pins are designed for use with 2.5-in. (6.3-cm) wire rope and are the fourth set delivered to Baydelta for this vessel class. The tow pins and hold-down hook are hydraulically raised and lowered by a dedicated hydraulic power unit located below deck -- operation is from the control panel situated in the wheelhouse.

Smith Berger is nearing completion on a two-year project furnishing fifteen stern rollers for Remontowa Shipyard in Gdansk, Poland. The stern rollers are designed for a SWL of 450MT and are furnished with bearing blocks, bronze bearings, and an automatic grease lubrication system.

Meanwhile, Smith Berger recently completed the delivery of ten double sheave fairleads and a combination of eighteen vertical and horizontal guide sheaves for a 64-mm wire rope, ten-point mooring system fitted on a pipelay barge.
