 Farset is designed for multi-purpose use, capable of towing with a considerably higher bollard pull than previously available and carrying out line running work with greater efficiency than was possible with some of the older plant.Farset is powered by two Volvo Penta D12-550 diesels, each rated at 550 bhp (408kW) at 1900rev/min.A bollard pull of 14.8 tonnes is a great advantage and the ability to control the bridle (gob) winch remotely from within the wheelhouse has reduced the risk to the tug and crew during towing operations .
