Med Marine Gets Repeat Order From Remolques Gijoneses

Med Marine proudly announces the signing of contract with Spanish tug operator Remolques Gijoneses for a MED-A2575 series tug. The contract was remotely signed by both parties on the 27th of October, 2020.

Med Marine previously delivered two 24m x 45TBP ASD tugs designed by Robert Allan Ltd. to Spanish operator’s Gijón operations.

MED-A2575 series is a Robert Allan’s RAmparts 2500W design, which is an ASD design offering different bollard pull options. MED-2575 series are known as versatile and robust ASD tug designs for ship-handling, coastal towing, general purpose or escort duties.

MED-A2575 is one of the most preferred series in Med Marine’s portfolio. The company successfully built and delivered 8 units of this series with different bollard pulls (60 TBP-70 TBP-75TBP). Lately, Med Marine signed contract with Italian Cafimar Group for another MED-A2575 series tug in September. Med Marine also operates these series tugs in its national fleet and has a good grasp of the series’ qualifications in terms of the operational aspect.

The delivery is set for March 2021 and once delivered MED-A2575 model tug (Hull Name: EREGLI 78) will be operated for the company’s Gijón operations.

Ms. Melis Üçüncü, Sales Manager from Med Marine, shared her thoughts and said “We have long term collaboration with Remolques Gijoneses and this is a repeat order. Once delivered, total number of Med Marine-built tugs operating in Remolques Gijoneses’ fleet will be three.  We are really delighted with this repeat order from Remolques Gijoneses and the confidence placed in high-quality and durability of Med Marine tugs. It will be a pleasure to build one of our most favourite design tugs for Remolques Gijoneses.”
