Two newbuild tugs ordered by Svitzer Australia left Uzmar’s shipyard in Turkey on Tuesday, March 12, for their delivery journey to their new owners.

The 80-tonne bollard pull Svitzer Redhead (pictured) and the 85-tonne bollard pull Svitzer Ruby, both designed by Robert Allan Ltd, are currently on their way to Fremantle and Port Kembla, respectively.

The tugs are scheduled to begin operational sailing by May.
