MTS expands fleet with purchase of MTS Terramare

Marine and Towage Services Group Ltd. (MTS), a marine services provider, has announced the purchase of its latest vessel, MTS Terramare. This multi-purpose landing craft enables the delivery of cargo, construction equipment and other materials directly onto land, without the need for dedicated dockside facilities, whilst additionally able to operate as a diving platform for offshore salvage and development work.

Equipped with a four-point mooring system, powerful deck crane and ISO container fittings, MTS Terramare is well suited for offshore dive operations.  For station keeping in shallow waters, MTS Terramare is equipped with two spud legs allowing the vessel to support survey, construction and installation risk management activities.

With a draught of 1.4m and a cargo deck measuring 13.7m x 4.6m, MTS Terramare can transport up to 50 tons onto remote shores at a top speed of 8 knots.  In addition, the craft contains accommodation for up to eight passengers, while a hydraulic deck ramp and crane facilitate the transfer of cargo ashore.

“Our clients look to us to meet their transportation requirements no matter the destination,” said Steve Bendell, Commercial Manager, MTS.

“Increasingly we are finding there is a market need to deliver cargo to locations with little or no port infrastructure.  Already, the MTS Terramare has been successful for the delivery of equipment and materials for the repair and maintenance of remote and inaccessible coastal assets.  The MTS Terramare will prove a valuable vessel in meeting this need, extending the versatility of our fleet and the range of services we provide our clients.”
