PD Ports welcomes newbuild to Teesport pilotage fleet

PILOTAGE WEEK

PD Ports has taken delivery of a new pilot boat that will serve Teesport in North Yorkshire.

Named Stainsby after one of the original four villages that later became Middlesbrough, the newbuild will replace the port’s older pilot boat, which will be transferred to the Port of Tyne.

Stainsby was acquired at a cost of £1.3 million (US$1.72 million).
