Bahwan Lamnalco (BLC), a joint venture between Smit Lamnalco and Suhail Bahwan Group, signed a new seven year contract with Oman India Fertiliser Company (Omifco) for the provision of towage and pilotage services at the Omifco export terminal in Sur.

Smit Lamnalco and BLC agreed to build two new 75 tons bollard pull ASD tugs for this important contract. The contract was signed by S G Gedigeri, CEO of Omifco and Sheikh Ahmed Bahwan of the Suhail Bahwan Group, on behalf of BLC, at a ceremony at Grand Hyatt Muscat on March 2, according to a press release.

The landmark contract creates an effective platform for BLC growth in Oman, with modern, world-class newly build assets.

During past 12 years more than 500 vessels have been safely berthed and unberthed from the Omifco jetty by Bahwan Lamnalco tugs, a testament to the close professional cooperation between Omifco and BLC.
