Svitzer wins 10-year contract extension in Russia

Svitzer has been awarded a 10-year extension on its existing marine service contract with Sakhalin Energy Investment Company, a consortium set up to develop and manage the Sakhalin-II project aimed at producing and exporting oil and liquefied gas.

Svitzer has been providing towage services to the Sakhalin-II project since 2007. The extension, which will come into effect in November 2022, will support the mooring of more than 1,800 gas carriers with a vessel fleet of four Robert Allan Ltd-designed icebreaking tugs and two mooring boats.

The vessels will continue to be operated by a team of 58 Russian crewmembers, supported by nine onshore staff.
