Biggest HATLAPA Stern Rollers Ordered for Maersk Tugboats

Press Release
Friday, May 31, 2013

HATLAPA builds its largest stern rollers to date for Maersk Supply Service’s two new tugs under construction in Chile.

The Danish shipping company Maersk Supply Service has ordered two large stern rollers from HATLAPA to be used in the two vessels built at the Chilean shipyard Asenav. The tugs will be built for worldwide use in the oil and gas industry. The first of two orders was delivered in early 2013, with the second to be completed by March 2014, explained Sales Engineer Marcus Wolter.
 
With this order, HATLAPA, the Uetersen, Germany-based marine equipment manufacturer has continued to strengthen its position as a leading manufacturer of offshore specific equipment.

At a size of 3 by 6 meters and a safe working load (SWL) of 1000 tons each, these are the biggest stern rollers HATLAPA has produced. The company is hoping that this order will showcase the quality of their products and thus result in more orders and more visibility within the South American market. Naturally, HATLAPA is also envisaging a long term working relationship with Maersk Supply Service and their fleet of 60 offshore vessels.
 
“We are pushing ahead in the offshore business”, says HATLAPA Managing Director Jörg Tollmien about the order, which has been planned with precision during the last year. “It allows us to bolster ourselves against the fluctuations in the commercial shipbuilding market and is ideal for us. Last year over a third of the HATLAPA’s annual turnover was generated by the offshore market.”
