Three of our most senior Pilots will be employed to coordinate five tugs with a total pulling force of over 400 tonnes.”The EnQuest Producer is 249m and 53k gross tonnes, and once fully converted will be destined for the North Sea oil fields off the coast of Aberdeen.The EnQuest Producer is expected to arrive off the Tyne at 1100 on Friday morning, and weather permitting, is anticipated to be approaching the berth at Offshore Group Newcastle in Wallsend by 1500.last_img
