Turkish shipbuilder, BOGAZICI, has recently delivered the new 70 tonne bollard pull ASD tug 'Tribilin' (ex- Bogazici 14) to the International Offshore Engineering Development Company (IOED) of Venezuela.
The historic Dutch oceangoing tug Elbe recently made its first trip carrying commercial passengers. After twelve years of painstaking restoration by dedicated enthusiasts of the Foundation Maritime Collection Rijnmond, the vessel is now certified ‘Lloyd's class 100 A1 Tug’ with a permit to sail with 80 day passengers. Elbe entered service in 1959 with the deepsea fleet of L Smit of Rotterdam and after a varied career was purchased by the Foundation to save it from the breakers yard. On 6 May May Elbe will depart from Maassluis to sail to Hamburg, on the river Elbe, to participate in the yearly Hafengeburtstag (Harbour birthday) festival.
