At the Ship Delivery department of TOS, our Superintendents Myron, Thies, and Niels have sailed for quite some time. Niels: ‘We have all sailed in different positions and disciplines. But we have one thing in common: exploring the world while working in an adventurous and constantly developing industry. Nowadays we’re working at the office, guiding ship delivery projects for our clients, and delivering all kinds of vessels. We’re still active in the industry even if it’s not really on board. We always try to join our ship delivery crews when they have to perform sea trials or bollard pull tests. Supporting our crew at the Shoalbuster 2711 was quite an opportunity!’
Last month, TOS delivered five vessels in a single joint voyage for PSA, the leading global port group from Singapore. ‘Captain Chowdhury Faroque Hossein and Er Chor Meng welcomed us at the PSA office*. Together with the five TOS Captains and Chief Engineers, we met and discussed all outstanding actions that had to be arranged before the departure of all Summits,’ says Myron Dam, Superintendent at TOS.
‘Years ago, I delivered the Mahaa Jarraafu from Qidong, China to the Maldives. Last month, I had the opportunity to also deliver its sister ship* Mario Oliva Perez from Kinderdijk, the Netherlands to Havana, Cuba. Same vessel, new adventure!’ says TOS Ship Delivery Captain Piet Smit.
´TOS calls. They offer me two ship delivery trips, so I can choose. Excellent. The first trip is from Peru via the Panama Canal to Bristol, United Kingdom. The second delivery begins in Dubai and has as its final destination Sydney, Australia. Even though I’ve never sailed the Panama Canal before, I choose for the trip Down Under.’ Captain Frans, Ship Delivery Captain at TOS shares his experiences.

I have always greatly enjoyed sailing as an Officer. The dredging project in Indonesia was especially impressive: the construction of a new container terminal. You begin with the dredging and, for a long time, all you see is water. After a few months, you slowly start to see an island forming. It’s fantastic!’ tells Myron Dam.
A job well done!: The Agile departed from Singapore and arrived in Viana do Castelo, Portugal last weekend. We want to thank the crew for a job well done! We are happy that everybody arrived safe and sound in Portugal. Mission accomplished! Have a safe trip home.
