Two new tugboats worth £6.1m each are ‘essential’

A contract has been signed for two new tugs for Orkney Islands Council's Marine Services. 
 
The design and build contract for the 32-metre tugs was secured by Sanmar Shipyards of Turkey.   
 
Construction is due to take place at Sanmar’s new specialist tug building facility, all of which is undercover, at Altinova about an hour south of Istanbul.
