Two Tugs Christened in Germany

Wednesday, June 06, 2007
Kotug International BV said that the last two out of a series of four Rotortugs have been christened by Kotug International BV during a small ceremony in the port of Hamburg last weekend. The 65 tons bollard pull RT Antonie and RT Zoë were built at the ASL Marine Shipyard in Singapore through Kooren Shipbuilding and Trading BV the holder of the successful Rotortug patent. The RT Antonie is named after the nephew of Kotug's CEO Ard-Jan Kooren and was christened by sponsor lady Anne Lusher, wife of Martin Lusher, partner with SSY in London and representative for Kotug International BV. The RT Zoë is named after the sponsor lady Zoë Kooren daughter of Ard-Jan and Chrisje Kooren. The RT Antonie is the 7th tug in the Kotug fleet in the port of Bremerhaven. The RT Zoë replaced a less powerful tug of Kotug's fleet of 4 tugs in the port of Hamburg and is the most powerful and manouvrable tug in that port.
