Svitzer, a leading provider of harbour and terminal towage to the global shipping industry, has named its new ASD tug Svitzer Adira, an 80 tonne bollard pull vessel built by Sanmar at a ceremony in the Port of Southampton.

The naming-giving ceremony took place in relaxed surroundings on board the Princess Caroline cruising the Southampton harbour with attendance of Managing Director of Svitzer Europe Kasper Nilaus and Adira’s Godmother Andry Waterman.

Svitzer Adira, a RAstar 2800 built by Sanmar in Turkey, will be serving the shipping industry in the port of Southampton as part of Svitzer’s fleet of five modern tugs ranging from 60-80 TBP including a variety of propulsions making it a very flexible fleet. Adira is a wonderful display of modern towage equipment matching the demands of today’s harbour towage environment.
