Didnt see this news posted anywhere. Not sure why this is beyond our own shipyards capacity or capability to do...



Turkey's Sanmar Shipyards said it has won contracts worth $33.46 million to supply four new tugs and two new pilot boats for the Port Qasim Authority (PQA) in Pakistan. The tugs are scheduled to be delivered in 12 months and the pilot boats in 10.

The contracts were awarded following an international tendering process during which Sanmar championed its new Kocacay range of escort and harbor tugs, based on the exclusive-to-Sanmar RAstar 3200SX design from Canada-based naval architects Robert Allan Ltd. The Sanmar Kocacay class tugs, designed in close cooperation with the Turkish tug builder and operator, and boast a unique sponsoned hull form, proven to provide significantly enhanced escort towing performance. Escort forces are enhanced by the effects of the sponsons as well as by the prominent foil-shaped escort skeg.

Three of the 32- by 13- by 5.6-meter liquefied natural gas (LNG) compatible tugs will have 75 tonnes of bollard pull ahead and astern, while the fourth will have an even greater BP of 85 tonnes.

The contracts with PQA for the ultra-modern tugs and two 20-meter pilot boats capable of 20 knots, were signed at a ceremony at the Ministry of Maritime office in Islamabad on March 29. It was witnessed by the Federal Minister for Maritime Affairs Syed Ali Haider Zaidi and Turkish Ambassador Ihsan Mustafa Yardakul. Commercial Projects Manager Ozge Abanuz and Procurement Manager Hakan Tunc represented Sanmar.

Afterward, PQA organized a celebration dinner, which was also attended by the Federal Minister for Maritime Affairs Syed Ali Haider Zaidi and his wife, along with Turkish Ambassador Ihsan Mustafa Yurdakul and Sanmar representatives.

The Minister invited Sanmar to build a shipyard in Pakistan, share its expertise and technology, and benefit from the local skilled and relatively low-cost workforce.

Ali Gurun, Vice President of Sanmar, said, “Sanmar has been delivering tugs to Pakistan since year 2000. We have tugs in KPT and PQA ports. However, this tender was one of the most challenging one due to tough competition. Our designers Robert Allan Ltd and supplier Kongsberg Marine have worked closely with Sanmar engineers to deliver best performance solution for PQA.”

Those are not for the navy, they are for Port Qasim. Commercial tugs to aid in leaving and arrival of ships. That’s why it wasn’t in this section, otherwise there was an entire thread on it.
KSEW does have the capability to manufacture tugs, one was launched for the navy just a month ago and Pakistanis were making fun of KSEW in the comments for “just making a tug” and then the same ones were making fun of them for not making tugs in the new thread.……

anyways, KSEW does have the capability, they are currently full making ships, subs and tugs for the navy, likely why the order was outsourced. They should expand KSEW.

Yeah. The PN had wanted 6 OHPs, so I guess the plan was to name them after Mughal rulers.

That said, the PN might need to come up with a new naming convention since it's expanding so much.

It seemed in the old days the idea was to give 'important' ships (e.g., frigates, new submarines, etc) the names of Mughal rulers or Sahaba (ra), but now, it seems that it's all over the place.

IMO a good convention would be:
  • Sahaba / Mughals: Destroyers and Frigates
  • Weapons / Animals / Concepts (e.g., Courage): Submarines
  • Cities / Provinces / Rivers: Corvettes, Tankers, OPVs etc
  • Pakistani Figures: Bases

Ah, sorry Bilal, I meant PN was not naming the Ships visiting Iran as one of them is American made. Good, knowledgable post though
