GAC Sri Lanka, a subsidiary of the McLarens Group, 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, crew and supply boats, the largest in the country. Her maneuverability and versatility enable GAC Sri Lanka to undertake the most complex operations for a global clientele, in accordance with the highest international standards. Yevin is part of the company’s ambitious growth plan to meet the increasing demand for offshore services.
The tug can operate under tough conditions, both in open waters and within port limits under the supervision of a handpicked 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. Her superior towing strength and handling allow her to serve large vessels calling all commercial ports of Sri Lanka.
“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,” says 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.”
