The Travels of Tug 44

Tender 4 Electric - NYS Canal Corp

Tender 4 is one of the fleet of small tugs operated by NYC Canal Corp, seen here tied up alongside a dredge near Utica.

Here she is again, tending to a dredge's floating mud pipeline.

In 2014, Tender 4's old diesel engine was removed and she was converted to plug-in battery electric drive. Here's a look in her "engine room" ... 2 electric motors in the middle, and racks of batteries on both sides.
