hi henk, i was doing some reasearch and the Salvage company Tsavliris has mangement over the Global Sucess.
i have an article from their website.

http://www.tsavliris.com/news_details.p ... record=113

hopefully the Former Svitzer tug will stay away from the breakers for some time, as reading a while back back she has anchor handling capability which will hopefully keep her on the water for while still.

I wonder if the former salvage tug Rotterdam will end up at the breakers like the London.

it would be good if they could save the Rotterdam as a museum. so that generations in the future can see a former Dutch salvage tug, among the best on the waters.

Tony.

Hi Tony,
Thanks for the address. Yes, I heard rumors that ex ROTTERDAM will follow LONDON soon. SINGAPORE is somewhat younger and as you said, anchor handling possibilities. So hopefully she will sail for a while!

its a shame to see the sister tugs London and possibly Rotterdam sold for scrap though. :(
It seems the two sister tugs have better value as metal then as deep sea tugs.

But i see many deep sea tugs are in fact anchor-handlers, so when they have no long distance towing jobs they can be chartered out for moving anchors and transporting supplies.

They must have known to have more then towing capability when Singapore was built. :)
