Multraship moves tug to Burgas

August 7 - Towage and salvage specialist Multraship is strengthening its position in the Black Sea region by transferring its Damen-built tugboat, Multratug 26, to the Port of Burgas, Bulgaria.

The Azimuth Stern Drive (ASD) tug will be operated by Multratug's wholly owned subsidiary, Bourgas Tug Service.

Pepijn Nuijten, Multraship's joint-managing director, said: "We have seen a significant growth in our Black Sea operations, mainly in harbour towage and in offshore work, not least that involving the Turkish Stream Project (and its predecessor the South Stream project) to build a natural gas pipeline from Southern Russia to Turkey."

The Multratug 26, which features a 63-ton (57.2-tonne) bollard pull, will strengthen the Bourgas Tug Service fleet, which consists of six tugboats.
