Sanmar completes second of new tug series

Gökçay II, the second tug in a series built by Sanmar Shipbuilders to a Robert Allan Ltd design, was completed in August following the first vessel of the same design being delivered in May. The two tugs are identical with the only exception being that Gökçay II has a more conservative power rating of 450 kW at 1,800 rpm for a bollard pull slightly over 16 tonnes.

Svitzer Vale heads to Denmark

The first 70 tonne bollard pull version of a Robert Allan Ltd. tugs design has been delivered to her owner, Svitzer of Denmark. The vessel was built by Sanmar Shipyards in Turkey, and christened Svitzer Vale.
