Mumbai: UAE-based Lamnalco Group has taken delivery of new anchor handling tug ,'Lamnalco Mallard', from India's ABG Shipyard (pictured). This is the third vessel the yard has delivered to Lamnalco in this financial year and the eighth delivered to the Group since it began dealings with the yard. ABG, which boasts an orderbook of about Rs82.7bn ($2bn), is contracted to deliver a further six vessels to the group over the next few years.

It will be deployed to supply, support floating production offloading storage (FPSO) vessels and offshore oil and gas fields.
