New Paintjob for Sullom Voe Tugs

Wednesday, May 10, 2006
The five bright red tugs operating at the Sullom Voe Terminal are soon to display the blue and white corporate colors of their new owner. Shetland Towage, a company wholly owned by the Shetland Charitable Trust, was incorporated into the Shetland Islands Council's ports and harbor operation on February 10, in a bid to streamline operations at the harbor and to cut costs. The first of the tugs is expected to be back in the isles from dry-docking in late June, when it will be sporting a blue hull and white superstructure, similar to the look of the council's fleet of inter island ferries.
