Maersk takes delivery of new AHTS Maersk Cutter
Maersk Supply Service has taken delivery of anchor handling tug supply vessel (AHTS) the Maersk Cutter.
The company says that the vessel, delivered on August 5, is the last anchor handling tug supply vessel in a series of two delivered from Asenav in Chile.
Maersk notes that like its sister vessel, the Maersk Clipper, the new AHTS is able to pull more than 180 tons, and the ample propeller power keeps it in position even in harsh weather conditions.
The Maersk Clipper was delivered from the shipyard in August 2014 and went directly on contract in Canada.
According to the company, the vessel is expected to arrive from Puerto Montt, Chile to homeport of St John’s, Newfoundland, in early September.
