The second FSRU – Eemshaven LNG – arrived in Eemshaven on Tuesday this week, 6 September, again under agency of Wagenborg and assisted with Wagenborg tug boats. Wagenborg is proud to assist both floating installations by means of agency services and tug assistance.

Assisting the FSRU ‘Golar Igloo’ marked the first towing job of the recently acquired 80 ton bollard pull tug Waterlines for Wagenborg. This ASD tug was recently acquired in Turkey after which she sailed to the Netherlands.

 

 

With the addition of ‘Waterlines’ the Wagenborg tug fleet now comprises of nine tugs to provide tug assistance to various vessels in the Ems region. This includes multipurpose vessels, RORO vessels, offshore vessels and LNG tankers.

The first LNG tanker ‘Murex’ to supply the EemsEnergy Terminal with liquefied natural gas arrived at midday today, Thursday 8 September, 16 days after sailing from the US port of Sabine Pass on the Louisiana/Texas border.
