Moving Heavy Tugs

Moving Heavy Tugs

We shipped a couple of heavy tug boats, about 330ts and 23m long each, from China to Venezuela. The tugs were build at a shipyard in South China, close to Guangzhou, and loaded onto Thorco Isadora in Nansha.

The client was a Venezuelan compa­ny specializing within this field. The tugs will be used for both for offshore pur­poses i.e. for oil and gas client explora­tion, barging rigs, cranes etc. as well as for port mooring operations along the nearby Venezuelan coast line.

It was a smooth oper­ation, well planned and execut­ed, and the tugs were successfully discharged in La Guaira, Venezuela.
