CDL to Launch Tugboat

June 20, 2007

Colombo Dockyards Limited’s (CDL) launch of the Anchor Handling Tug a boat, built for Great Ship (India), is scheduled to take place next week, reported the Daily News. CDL had invested much resources to modernize the previous repair dock No. 2 to a shipbuilding dock with increased tonnage and widening of the entrance to handle beamer ships, which is at the Colombo Port.

This is the first of the two Anchor Handling Tug Supply Vessels (AHTSV) with a 80 Ton Bollard Pull capacity for Greatship (India) Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of one of India’s largest private sector shipping companies, the Great Eastern Shipping Company, who are in the business of providing offshore oil field services catering to the oil and gas E&P domain. Greatship will give some more orders in the near future as well. The keel laying to mark the commencement of work on the first AHTSV was held on October 23, 2006 and work on the second AHTSV commenced on December 21, 2006. The first and the second AHTSV’s are scheduled for delivery in December 2007 and during first quarter of 2008 respectively. Source: Daily News
