TOS (Transport & Offshore Services) and Svitzer Americas have done business for a while now. Over the last five years many tug boats were delivered to North America and South America. Because of this cooperation TOS was able to conduct high speed ship delivery services for the Svitzer Kestrel.
It only took two days from inquiry to a signed order for the delivery of the Svitzer Kestrel. Within days the crew left for Singapore together with Victor Mees, Senior Consultant Nautical & Technical at TOS The preparation for the departure started from a ‘layed up’ with all systems down. The tug was moored in Singapore for a month without any electricity. In close cooperation with Svitzer Americas and the trained delivery crew, the job was carried out in a couple of days.
Last Sunday, on the 19th of February, the Svitzer Kestrel left the port of Singapore for a voyage of approximately two months, via Cape town with final destination in the Caribbean. We wish the crew of the Svitzer Kestrel a safe voyage! Source: TOS
