BRAZIL At the same time in Brazil two SVITZER ocean-going tugs LONDON and ROTTERDAM and the tug DE DA owned by the pool partner, COESS, have just reached their destination. They have towed the Petrobras P53, a Floating Production Unit, 10,500 miles from Singapore to Rio Grande do Sul. It took 70 days to tow the almost 350 meters long and 57 meters wide FPU safely to its destination. NORWAY The crew onboard the emergency response/rescue vessel ESVAGT CONNECTOR has just transferred at sea from their fast rescue crafts ready to start their shift. The vessel is stationed in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea assisting StatoilHydro with emergency and support services at their offshore installation. DENMARK In the meantime SVITZER Salvage is assisting in re-fl oating the 225 meter long bulk carrier CORONIS. The vessel grounded close to Copenhagen and salvage experts were immediately moved in and an on-site inspection carried out. The fi rst step will be transferring bunkers from the double bottom tanks to tanks higher up in the vessel and discharging of ballast. These activities are just a few ‘snap shots’ from SVITZER’s 5 business segments in 2008 – but it all began in 1833 in Copenhagen. S V I T Z E R – S A F E T Y A N D S U P P O R T AT S E A 9
