Turkey’s Uzmar is profiting from speculative construction of harbour tugs. The builder enjoys a long-standing relationship with Venezuela’s International Offshore Engineering and Development Co and recently delivered two 60-tonne bollard pull, 25m long tugs to them, which will work at Venezuela’s major oil terminals. The Turkish builder has 10 more of this design on order and some of these are also likely to find their way to Venezuela. Uzmar also holds orders for four similar units. All 16 units are for builder’s account and delivery throughout 2018.
