Canada’s Seaspan Marine Transportation has taken delivery of a new escort and firefighting tug from Sanmar Shipyards of Turkey.
Seaspan Raptor is the first in a series of two tugs ordered from Sanmar. It has an LOA of 24 metres, a bollard pull in excess of 75 tonnes, and Fifi1 equipment.
The tug was originally built in 2015 and was initially operated by Sanmar in its own fleet. It recently underwent a full docking and other modifications to meet Seaspan and Canadian requirements and will sail to Vancouver with arrival expected in late November.
The second tug, a sister vessel built in 2016, will be delivered to Seaspan in the spring of 2021.
