Stirling Ship Management Ltd in Glasgow in the UK is to take delivery of a pair of new anchor-handling tugs next month.

The new vessels - the Stirling Islay and the Stirling Jura - are being built at Ferguson Shipbuilders in the UK. The first, the Stirling Jura, was launched on 18 October.

The vessels are based on the VS475 design and are 74.45m overall, with a moulded breadth of 16m and maximum draft of 6.5m. They will have a deck area of 500m2 and will be driven by a pair of Wartsila 12V32 main engines with an output of 15,000bhp.

They will have a bollard pull of circa 175 tonnes, and will be capable of lifting anchors of up to 173 tonnes directly from the seabed.
