The tugboat will be renamed 'Waterland'. Together with her sister ship 'Waterlines', 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 new acquisition was built in 2020 by the Uzmar Shipyard in Turkey. The ASD 3280 Tug - a Robert Allen design - is very manoeuvrable and has a high performance with a modern design. Thanks to its operational flexibility, the tugboat can be used for port and terminal towage operations, escort operations, firefighting operations, coastal and offshore towage operations.
The Waterland is expected to arrive in Eemshaven early this summer.
