UK: CTruk Boats Bags Five Orders at Seawork 2012

CTruk Boats Bags Five Orders at Seawork 2012

CTruk Boats, innovative UK shipyard on the east coast, has secured five new orders at Seawork 2012. The company will build the first CVenture40, which offers year-round utilisation for owner-operators, and four 19m multi-purpose catamarans (MPC).

Andy White, Chairman of CTruk Boats, said, “These orders establish CTruk Boats as the leading, innovative UK shipyard and demonstrate the demand for ground-breaking vessels with solid specifications”. He explained, “The innovative construction of our 19m and 28m workboats means they are half the cost of similar aluminium vessels”.

CVenture40 is designed to offer luxury expedition charters in the Caribbean in the winter months, accessing remote locations with as little as 1m draft where other super yachts cannot go. CTruk Boats’ flexible pod system means that, in the style of 18th century British warships, the charter cabins can be broken down to carry people (rather than cannons!) to service wind farms in the European summer.

The four 19m MPCs have been ordered by an existing operator and three new owner-operators as part of CWind’s boat share scheme. These vessels will be built this year and immediately go on contract to the UK’s east coast.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
