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 stands as a distinguished builder of cutting-edge tugboats, workboats, and tailor-made, high-performance vessels. Positioned as the pioneer of shipbuilding excellence, sustainability, and the integration of high-end innovations, the shipyard has lately incorporated methanol-powered and electric-driven tugboats into its portfolio. UZMAR holds an unmatched record of on-time delivery with 200 vessels delivered to 25 countries in the world.
