Med Marine delivered its second MED-A2885 tug to Svitzer earlier this month to join the company’s Suez Canal fleet.

Named SVITZER SUEZ 3, the vessel is a Robert Allan Ltd-design RAstar 2800 tug with firefighting and escort notations.

“This is a state of the art tug boat with full escort capability and can provide 75 tonnes Bollard Pull which ensures Towage operations in Suez Canal can be performed in a safe and powerful way,” said Med Marine.

The delivery of the vessel brings Svitzer’s Suez Strait fleet to six vessels covering Port Said and Port Suez. Med Marine delivered the first vessel at the end of April 2022.

Commenting on the contract, Melis Üçüncü, Sales Manager of Med Marine, said: “We are proud to be delivering another first class tugboat to Svitzer. We are looking forward to next ones to further strengthen our partnership.”
