When completed at end 2006, the vessel will be deployed in the Caspian Sea region. The other two OSVs are for repeat customer Groupe Bourbon (Bourbon). With these two 100-tonne bollard pull anchor handling tugs, Keppel Singmarine’s orders from Bourbon will add up to a total of seven vessels.

Keppel Smit Towage has placed an order for two tugboats, designed by Keppel’s Marine Technology Development. Keppel Singmarine has 19 vessels under construction, having delivered five since the beginning of 2005.
