URS is a tug
company based in Antwerp. They also have a
number of anchor handling ships and one or two
of them are seen on occassion engaged in
offshore operations. Possibly the most visible
is President Hubert which is often used by
Heerema to assist with heavy lift activities.
At some time in the
last 12 months URS have been purchased by
Boskalis and I think that they have also
ourchased some of the former Knight fleet of
emergency towing vessels. however Bolskalis is
opaque on these matters, which may not be of
much interest to them due to their other larger
and possibly much more important activities.
Hence for the moment no changes have been made
to this site, awaiting more information.
