A newly built tugboat, the Bob Franco, was due to arrive in Alaska to escort and assist ships docking at Tesoro’s refinery at Nikiski on the Kenai Peninsula.

A welcoming ceremony was planned for Nov. 12 in the Homer harbor.

The 120-foot, 5,360-horsepower tractor tug is designed specifically to operate in “the severe tides, fast currents and heavy ice of Cook Inlet,” said an Oct. 29 media advisory from the Cook Inlet Regional Citizens Advisory Council, which monitors oil industry activity in the inlet.

The tug belongs to Seattle-based Harley Marine Services. It will operate under contract for Tesoro.
