Redwise delivers Svitzer duo to Newcastle

The delivery voyages of the tugs Svitzer Neso and Svitzer Nixie from Singapore to Newcastle in Australia were contracted by Svitzer to Redwise Maritime Services of the Netherlands.

The 5,915 bhp, 630gt vessels made a safe voyage that took them through the Java, Flores-, Banda and Arafura Sea before heading through the Torres Strait and inside of the Great Barrier reef to their destination.

With the vessels being over 500gt, Redwise did the ISM and ISPS certification for the voyage to ensure full compliance. The voyages included a number of repeats, with the vessels having been delivered previously by Redwise from the building yard in NE China to Singapore in 2012. Newcastle was also the port where Redwise delivered three Voith Schneider tugs in 1994. Also, more then half of the crew members returned to Singapore after the voyage to commence with the next two voyages for the same client, but going around the other side of Australia.
