Multraship adds to fleet

June 11 - Multraship - a Netherlands based towage and salvage specialist - has strengthened its multipurpose fleet with the addition of the ASD tug Multratug 20.

Multraship has contracted with broker and consultant DSB Offshore for the long-term bareboat charter of the 72-tonne bollard pull vessel. Multratug 20 was built by Bogazici Shipyard, Turkey during 2010 and is equipped to undertake a range of services including towage, escort, anchor handling, firefighting and salvage.

Leendert Muller, managing director, Multraship, said: The latest addition to the Multraship fleet underlines our long-term commitment to the maritime sector. Our new tug will be used primarily at sea, for towage, and to provide assistance and support for wind-farm and offshore construction projects."

Muller added that although traditional shipping activities are experiencing a difficult time as a result of the economic downturn, the offshore sector is healthy and technology is being used to exploit new opportunities. "At the same time, the renewable energy market continues to develop at an exciting pace, driven by the demand for clean, green sources of power."
