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.
At the ceremony, BLC and Omifco exchanged tokens of appreciations and awards for the achievements of 12 years (2005-2017) without any lost time incidents (LTI).
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.
