In 2011 Palumbo Shipyards Naples secures a contract for the construction of a high-tech work unit: Tug Recoil Globeco "Blu”. A steel unit of 38m, 10.6m beam and a GT of 464, with the precise mission to protect the marine environment in case of accidental pollution caused by oil and its derivatives.

This M/V Tug “Blu” represented a challenge for Palumbo both for reduced timing and for the overall complexity of the systems and their management.
