URS 

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.
