Suez Canal Authority order builds on the success of RAstar 3200-W platform, 20 of which are already in service worldwide.
Egypt’s South Red Sea Shipyard has awarded Vancouver, B.C.-based Robert Allan Ltd. a contract for the design of 10 RAstar 3200-W ASD tugs to be built for the Suez Canal Authority. These new vessels build on the success of the RAstar 3200-W series of azimuthing stern drive tugs, 20 of which are already in service worldwide.
On completion of this contract, the Suez Canal Authority will own and operate over 20 Robert Allan Ltd. designed tugs, all of which are high-performance ASD tugs. These new vessels will complement the existing eight Robert Allan Ltd. designed tugs currently working in Egypt for commercial operators.
