T.O.S. Inks Contract with German Towing Company

T.O.S. Inks Contract with German Towing Company

T.O.S. (Transport & Offshore Services) and the German towing company Hans Schramm & Sohn Schleppschifffahrt have signed a contract for the ship delivery and total crewing of the NavTug© FlatTop “Torsten”. In the beginning of this month Mr Torsten Andritter-Witt (Managing Director) and Mr. Kees Wagenaar (Managing Director T.O.S.) signed the total crewing contract.

The first contact between the towing company from the Schramm Group and T.O.S. was made during Tugnology’11 in Antwerp. “Besides the ship delivery of the “Torsten” the crewing was a topic of conversation. The vessel is the towing company’s own design and offers 24/7 accommodation for a crew of up to 6 people. From the beginning T.O.S. has shown its value with nautical and legal advice for the personnel services.”  thus Rolf Kievits, Commercial Manager T.O.S.

A T.O.S. delegation consisting of Marlena Holdermans (Executive Manager Finance, Quality & Law), Marleen Stuurman (Executive Manager Operations) and Rolf Kievits (Commercial Manager) visited the festive christening of the “Torsten” in Turkey on Saturday, February the 18th. With this ceremony the maiden-trip of this NavTug© FlatTop is coming near. Within two weeks the “Torsten” will depart for Brunsbüttel in Northern Germany. From here the vessel will be used in several offshore wind projects in European waters.

“T.O.S. employs worldwide professionals in the wind energy sector. T.O.S. professionals are working at projects and on vessels active in survey, foundation, turbine & substation to maintenance. With the total crewing of the “Torsten” T.O.S. sets an important step in this sector again.” thus Rolf Kievits.

Shipyard Sanmar in Turkey is a well-known place for the departure of T.O.S. ship deliveries. Last week, the final vessel of four departed for the company Seaspan from Canada. The Seaspan Kestrel departed for a voyage of two months to its final destination Vancouver.
