On Wednesday the 21st of September the ASD tug SMIT Dane left the port of Rotterdam, the Netherlands, for a voyage (ship delivery) of approximately one month. Her final destination is the port of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The SMIT Dane is the first tug in a series of four to be delivered by TOS to Brazil.
In 2008 TOS delivered the new build SMIT Dane (former SMIT Trinidad) from Galatz, Romania to Antwerp, Belgium. Now the tug will start working under much better conditions: the Brazilian sun. Last year TOS opened the joint venture TIM (TOS Internacional Marítima) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Our Branch Manager Marcelo Cintra will welcome the crew at arrival.
The SMIT Dane sails under full TOS management and with a TOS crew. We wish the crew of the SMIT Dane a safe voyage.
