There are no fewer than 16 deliveries to report this month, eight of which are a series of Rotortugs for the same owner from two yards in Vietnam and China.
Med Marine is providing a steady stream of news of late reporting two additions to its fleet of tugs and an agreement to build a new design of tug.
After the usual quiet holiday period, activity is back in full swing with news dominated by deliveries and orders for Damen and more design success for Robert Allan Ltd (RAL).
The holiday season usually brings with it a hiatus in news, not so in the world of tug construction within Europe with eight vessels to mention along with an order for a Damen ASD tug from Cyprus.
While orders have been reported of late which we will return to, here we look at five notable deliveries involving familiar names in the European arena.
Recent weeks have seen a steady stream of news on the delivery and order front with strong European domination but also including global involvement within the tug building industry.
Eight tug deliveries and one order are reported this month including news of four and fifteen vessel series orders for operation in the Caspian Sea and Indonesia.
Turkey’s Med Marine has taken delivery of a powerful ASD built by Ereğli Shipyard: a Med Marine Group company. Peter Barker takes a closer look at this latest in a series.
This month, while we report on three tug deliveries the news is dominated by orders for no fewer than sixteen vessels indicating a continuing appetite for owners to replace existing tonnage, and service new contracts.
