Anchor-Handling Tug ‘Yevin’

 

GAC Sri Lanka has welcomed the newest and largest addition to its fleet of support vessels, the Anchor-Handling Tug “Yevin”. 

The vessel joins the company’s fleet of 12 vessels, which includes tugs and crew and supply boats, one of the largest in the country. The vessel’s manoeuvrability and versatility enable GAC Sri Lanka to undertake the most complex operations for a global clientele, in accordance with the highest international standards. 

The tug can operate under tough conditions, both in open waters and within port limits, under the supervision of a handpicked and experienced crew, and has the endurance to operate well over 45 days at sea without a port call.

Yevin will be used for towing, salvage, rescue, and firefighting operations as well as other marine services such as bulk delivery of freshwater and lubricants. 

“We are proud of this addition which boosts our fleet’s operational capabilities, allowing us to better serve our customers with a full spectrum of offshore services,” said GAC Sri Lanka Director/CEO Ravi Edirisinghe. “Yevin is fully equipped to serve ships plying the busy sea lanes off Galle, Colombo, and Hambantota, and supports the country’s aspirations of becoming a maritime hub in the region.”
