URAG (UNTERWASER REEDERI)

According to their website this towing company started business more than 130 years ago. In the 1960s the company briefly entered the bulk shipping market but retained its focus on tug operations, and in the 1970s abandoned its deep sea operations. If one looks on the internet it is possible to see a dispute between URAG and Zapata. While the tug Bremen was towing a Zapata jack-up in the Gulf of Mexico the rig's legs broke off in rough weather. Zapata blamed Unterweser for the damage and a court case resulted. It appears that the action took place in the English court, though it is difficult to see what actually happened if you are not a legal eagle.

But back to today, amongst the fleet of tugs are two anchor-handlers, and they are featured here. And at the 2014 review there had been no changes to the fleet as far as offshore vessels are concerned.

Updated 21st October 2014.
