Spotted: Thorco Isadora Shipping Smaller Ships

Ships shipping smaller ships is nothing strange for our industry. In one such example we bring you a video from Denmark-based shipping company Thorco Shipping that transported a couple of heavy tug boats from China to Venezuela in January this year.

How the loading of the tugs on Thorco’s multipurpose dry cargo ship looked like is shown in the video and the following photos.

The tugs, built at a shipyard in South China, close to Guangzhou, were loaded onto 2011-built Marshall Islands-flagged Thorco Isadora in Nansha.

The client that ordered the transfer was a Venezuelan company specializing within this field, Thorco explained, adding that the transport of another batch is to ensue soon.

The tugs are to be used for both offshore purposes and port mooring operations along the nearby Venezuelan coastline.

“We did a good job all the way around in the organization and we had great support from our techni­cal department from day one,” commented Peter Bytoft, Managing Director at Thorco China at the time.

The tugs were discharged at the beginning of March in La Guaira, Venezuela.
