Svitzer, the towage operator that is part of Maersk, announced a 10-year extension of its marine service contract with Sakhalin Energy Investment Company Ltd., a consortium set up to develop and manage the Sakhalin-II project, aimed at producing and exporting oil and liquefied gas.

Svitzer has been providing towage services to the Sakhalin-II project since 2007, and the extension comes into effect in November 2022 to support the mooring of more than 1,800 gas carriers with a vessel fleet of four Robert Allen ice-breaking tugs and two mooring boats. These vessels are operated by a team of 58 Russian crew members, supported by nine onshore staff.

The operation in Sakhalin is part of Svitzer's Asia and Middle East region (AMEA). Here, Svitzer employs 1,225 people and 109 vessels, delivering marine services to global and regional customers across 10 countries.
