The SmitWijs managed Global Towing Alliance (GTA) is to expand its fleet of powerful ocean going tugs with two more units. The COESS, Shanghai, owned 16,580 BHP “DE HONG” will enter the pool by the end of 2005. The vessel is of the AHTS type and was built in 2000. Bollard pull is certified at 185 tons and the capacity of 2,200 m3 intermediate fuel creates an autonomy of 40 days at full power. Her double drum towing winch is equipped with two 1,500 meter 75mm steel towing wires whilst a third one of similar size will be stored on a separate reel.
