NEWS, Projects, Nakilat

Qatar-based marine company Nakilat has celebrated the delivery of two 16-metre mooring boats built by shipbuilder Nakilat Damen Shipyards Qatar (NDSQ) for towage operator Nakilat SvitzerWijsmuller (NSW).

The two Stan Tug 1606 mooring boats — named Ras Al Allaj Qatar and Al Esaiwed — are the first of a seven-vessel order that NDSQ is currently working on for NSW.

The vessels will work on a long term charter to Qatar Petroleum and will be part of the growing fleet of NSW vessels in the Port of Ras Laffan.

NSW already operates a fleet of 25 vessels at Ras Laffan and a further five vessels at Halul Island, performing about 12,500 tug jobs per year in the Port of Ras Laffan.

NDSQ is a joint venture between Nakilat and Dutch shipbuilder Damen and is based at Erhama Bin Jaber Al Jalahma Shipyard in Ras Laffan, Qatar
