ALP Maritime Services BV at Rotterdam has taken delivery of two towing and anchor handling vessels, ALP WINGER and ALP GUARD.
The company reflagged the vessels under Dutch Flag. The vessel ALP GUARD was previously known as AHT URANUS and ALP WINGER as AHT JANUS.
In November 2014, the company bought six long distance anchor-handling and towing vessels built in Germany in the period 2006 – 2010. ALP GUARD and ALP WINGER are the first two in this group of six anchor handling tugs which ALP took over during Q1 and Q2 this year.
The vessels are operating in the 200 and 300 Tonnes Bollard Pull towing vessel segment.
