Salvage and towage company, Multraship BV has added the former Red Funnel/Adsteam tug Hamtun to its fleet.
The 1985-built, 3,500 IHP vessel has been renamed Multratug 16 and will mainly be deployed providing harbour towage services
in the ports of Terneuzen and Flushing and on the Terneuzen-Ghent Canal.
Multraship has also bought the former Dutch lifeboat Johannes Frederik, to operate as a fast-rescue tender providing emergency response services in the River Scheldt area. The vessel, now renamed Multraship Responder, will replace the Multrajet, which has been sold to the Congolese Ministry of Health.
