Royal Wagenborg Adds New Tugboat to Its Fleet
The Robert Allan design ASD 3280 tug which Royal Wagenborg purchased in mid-June is renamed 'Waterland' and has arrived in Eemshaven a few days ago.
Together with her sister ship 'Waterlines' purchased from UZMAR last year, the 'Waterland' with her 80-ton bollard pull is the largest tugboat in the fleet of Wagenborg Towage, which now consists of ten tugs.
The newly acquired ‘Waterland’ was built in 2020 by the UZMAR Shipyard in Turkey and delivered to UZMAR Fleet to operate at Istanbul Ambarli Port. The ASD 3280 Tug is highly maneuverable and has high performance with her unique and modern design. With her exceptional operational flexibility, the tugboat is utilized for port and terminal towage operations, escort operations, firefighting operations, and coastal and offshore towage operations.
Wagenborg aims to further strengthen its position in the towage services market in Northwest Europe with 'Waterland', the second tugboat purchased from UZMAR Shipyard in the last year.
UZMAR Shipyard, which has exported more than two hundred tugboats and special type vessels built in its modern shipyard located in Kocaeli Free Zone Turkiye, to 25 countries in 6 continents, is among the world's leading shipyards in its field.
