Seacontractors has taken delivery of two new anchor handling tugs of 70 tons bollard pull, named ATLANTIS and DIAN KINGDOM. As Seacontractors announced last year the workboat fleet would be expanding with new orders at Damen Shipyards Group, these vessels have now been delivered. The two originally built Stan Tugs have been completely converted into customized AHT workboats, and have been released from the Damen Song Cam shipyard in Haiphong on Wednesday the 12th of August 2015. After successfully performed sea trials at the end of July this year, Seacontractors is excited to put the two vessels into service. Both vessels departed from the shipyard at the beginning of last week. The Atlantis will commence her maiden towage trip from Singapore on 16th of August with destination Middle East, where the vessels will be stationed. These 70t bollard pull AHT workboats are a great addition to the existing fleet, enabling Seacontractors to pursue its ambitions and satisfy the specific needs of the maritime industry by offering specialized services.
