Colle Maritime Company of Pascagoula Miss., a joint venture between Signet Maritime Corporation and Colle Towing Company, has been awarded a twenty-year contract to provide marine services to Angola LNG Supply Services LLC (ALSS) in the Port of Pascagoula, Miss. The agreement, to commence third quarter 2011, includes options to extend for up to ten additional years.

Utilizing their combined expertise, the joint venture between Colle and Signet will construct two highly specialized terminal support/escort tugs that will each provide 80 metric tonnes of bollard pull. Designed by Robert Allan Ltd., these RAstar 3100 class tugs were designed and engineered to offer truly superior ship-handling, escort, and sea-keeping performance in comparison to any more conventional style of tug. Construction will commence immediately at Trinity Offshore in Gulfport, Miss. Both tugs will be built to American Bureau of Shipping Maltese Cross A1 Towing & Escort Service, Fire Fighting Vessel Class 1 (Fi-Fi 1), and Maltese Cross AMS standards.  Additional tugs from the existing Signet and Colle fleets will complement these primary tugs.
