IMS COMPLETES DELIVERY OF 4 SVITZER TUGS FOR CHEVRON17 May, 2015
Early last week, Ship Delivery Specialists International Maritime Services (IMS), safely docked the last of the four 33m, 75TBP Diesel-Electric Hybrid Escort Tugs in Fremantle, having completed the voyages on behalf of SVITZER. SVITZER Euro, Boodie, Dugong and Perentie, all named after native Australian fauna, sailed simultaneously for their maiden 2420nm delivery voyages from Singapore, including an unplanned alteration in routing for cyclone avoidance of the last storm for the 2014/15 Australian season. SVITZER Dugong was the final tug to touch down, representing the completion of IMS’ 18th delivery voyage so far in 2015. Standard for all ship delivery voyages since 2013, IMS offset a proportion of carbo emissions against each vessel – a total of 40M3 of MGO for this contract – through a Lloyds accredited provider, highlighting the company’s commitment to environmental sustainability.
