Sanmar AS, a tugboat operator and builder in Turkey, has invested in another shipyard.
The new shipyard is located in Altinova, where construction has already begun on several vessels. When totally completed, the new shipyard will be approximately 50,000m2 in total, of which 26,000m2 will comprise a covered and closed production area.
Sanmar informs that the infrastructure is being designed to ensure maximum standards of health and safety, also respecting the needs of the environment. Sanmar said it aims to be the greenest shipyard in Turkey.
In its Tuzla Shipyard (which is to remain in full production) Sanmar builds specialized tugboats. When the new yard is completely up and running, the company intends to extend its scope with the construction of more sophisticated vessels, adding to its existing portfolio of tugboats with AHTSs, PSVs, offshore construction vessels and those using alternative fuels such as LNG.
