I do noot think so. Reffering to her name ; Trave (-munde) > Germany.
At this moment I do not have the correct information.

Rumoers are going under Dutch flag.

Tug Simson has arrived Sept. 20, 2013 @ Lubeck, Germany.
She is instead of the Svitzer Trave for a period from about 5 - 6 weeks, untill the Trave has undergone and finished the overhaul at the Oranjewerf, Amsterdam - Netherlands.
