Boluda Towage opts for Med Marine’s MED-A2885 series
Boluda Towage, a leading towage operator in the world, chooses Med Marine’s MED-A2885 series RAstar 2800 design. Med Marine’s unit was chosen by Boluda due to its wide range of operational capacities such as daily ship towage, salvage and emergency response, with fire-fighting systems and equipment for preventing pollution.
The closing ceremony for the MED-A2885 series, designed by Canadian Naval Architects Robert Allan exclusively for Med Marine took place at Med Marine’s head office with participation of General Manager Jorge Rosety as well as Charo Coll, Chartering Manager of Boluda in Istanbul in April 2023.
