Nordane in Goteborg

The two new tugs delivered this year by Irving Shipbuilding's East Isle Shipyard to Nordane Shipping have gone to work in Goteborg, Sweden, in a head to head competition with the established tug company.

Nordane, a Danish company has positioned Stevns Breaker (seen above) and Stevns Battler in Goteborg, Sweden, where Roda Bolaget has been the only tug provider for many years. Both tugs completed trials and commissioning in Halifax before sailing to Denmark.

By coincidence, Roda Bolaget is part of Svitzer, also a Danish company, within the Maersk group.
