Cheoy Lee Joins Robert Allan “Century Club”
On April 26, 2016, Cheoy Lee Shipyards launched the 100th vessel it has built to a Robert Allan Ltd. design, becoming the second shipyard worldwide to do so, after Sanmar’s initial achievement of this milestone in 2013.
This epic tug, Hull Number 5098 at Cheoy Lee, is a RAstar 3200 class ASD tug, with completion expected in August, 2016.
At present Cheoy Lee’s Hin Lee yard in China is very busy with a flotilla of Robert Allan Ltd. tugs at various stages of completion.
The cooperation between Robert Allan Ltd. and Cheoy Lee dates back to 2003, with the construction of the first of the Z-Tech series tugs for PSA Marine. Since that time the two companies have developed a close and cooperative working relationship, providing high quality custom-tailored tugs for the international market.
