Yesterday, Bram de Feijter, Manager Newbuilding at Boskalis and Marleen Stuurman, Executive Manager Operations at TOS signed a ship delivery contract for the SST Rambala. Saam Smit Towage (SST) is a joint venture between SAAM S.A. and Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. providing towage services in Mexico, Canada, Panama and Brazil. The newbuild DAMEN 2913 ASD tug named SST Rambala will be added to the company’s Panama fleet. The opening of the new locks are likely to bring bigger vessels to the Panama terminals and the compact, manoeuvrable and powerful SST Rambala is perfect for the job.
Rolf Kievits, Sales Manager Ship Delivery at TOS is very pleased to announce the contract signing.
Rolf: ‘Both joint venture partners and TOS go way back. Boskalis/Smit have done business with us since the very start of our company and SAAM has been a loyal and returning client for many years. Wonderful that TOS has been awarded the delivery of this vessel for the SST joint venture.’
Next month a TOS ship delivery crew will depart from Galati, Romania to Panama.
