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!
