Three vessels will be used in the operations in Ceyport Tekirdağ Port.
Turkey’s leading tugboat operator Ceyport Tekirdağ Uluslararasi Liman Işletmeciliği A.Ş and shipbuilder Med Marine and Ceyport Tekirdağ Uluslararası Liman İşletmeciliği A.Ş. (Cey Group Company) from Turkey, signed a sales contract for two tugboats and a mooring boat.
Cey Group is a leading Turkish Logistics Group of Companies that operates in the most important inland and foreign trade centers of Turkey located in Marmara, Aegean, Mediterranean and Black Sea regions.
Three vessels provided by Med Marine will be used in the operations in Ceyport Tekirdağ Port located in Tekirdağ - Marmara coast of Turkey.
Ms. Melis Üçüncü, Sales Manager from Med Marine, expressed her thoughts about this new collaboration and said:
“We are very proud that our vessels are in high demand by operators not only all over the world but also in Turkey. This is the beginning of a new cooperation and I hope we may continue to strengthen our partnership with Cey Group in future. The tugboats’ performances are well-proven as they were operated in Med Marine’s fleet for many years and we believe that they will be a good fit for Cey Groups fleet.”
Mr. Berzan Avcı From Ceyport Tekirdağ (Vice Chairman of the Board) shared some thoughts about this new collaboration between Med Marine and Ceyport Tekirdağ by saying:
“Thanks to our cooperation with Med Marine, the marine fleet and, in this context, tugboat needs of our Ceyport Tekirdağ Port have been resolved. We sincerely thank Med Marine Company for their close cooperation and constructive approach. We hope that our cooperation will continue in the coming years.”
The tugboats are twin screw type vessels designed by Robert Allan Ltd, both of which were previously being operated in Med Marine’s national fleet.
