State-of-the-art pusher gets DEIF upgrade
In Paraguay, an upgraded pusher tug relies on DEIF power management systems to deliver the power for heating its IFO. The DEIF solution is expected to cut fuel consumption by 3% annually and ensures sufficient and reliable power.
The Yeruti is a pusher tug operating on the Paraguay and Parana rivers in Paraguay. Following a retrofit project at Shipyard SA carried out by PEBSA SA, DEIF’s distributor in Argentina and Paraguay, the Lloyds Register classified vessel has been upgraded with several new features including the PPM-3 power management system from DEIF.
Proven results with previous DEIF solution
The Yeruti project was the second time that Shipyard SA and PEBSA went with a DEIF solution together. In 2013, PEBSA carried out a similar retrofit project, installing PPM-3 solutions on the Altanero pusher tug. The customer was very satisfied with this solution because it was simple and reliable, and because it saved power in different modes of operation. Choosing DEIF for the Yeruti was therefore very easy for the customer who expects the system to provide several benefits.
