SMS Towage’s Humber fleet adds new tug
Harbour authority ABP this week welcomed SMS Towage’s new tug, Manxman, onto the river Humber, the company said in its release.
The new tug, built by international shipyard group Damen, based at Gorinchem in Holland, is technically known as an Azimuth Stern Drive (ASD) 2411 tug. With 5,600 brake horsepower, the tug offers more power than seven Ferraris.
The new addition, which will bring SMS Towage’s Humber fleet up to a sturdy 10 represents circa £5 million worth of investment.
With another seven tugs located across South East Wales Ports, Portsmouth and Belfast, SMS Towage’s offering to ports across the country are ever expanding.
