The last of six tugboats built by Remontowa Shipbuilding for the Polish Navy, H-13 Przemko, has wrapped up its acceptance and delivery protocol.
With this, the entire contract for the construction of six tugboats for the Polish Navy within the programme under code-name HOLOWNIK (tug) has been successfully completed.
This contact was signed by the Armament Inspectorate and Remontowa Shipbuilding in June 2017.
The tug H-13 Przemko left the shipyard on 24 May 2021. It is joining the tugs H-11 Bolko and H-12 Semko, becoming part of the 12th minesweeper squadron, and will serve in the 8th Coastal Defence Flotilla in Świnoujście.
H-1 Gniewko, H-2 Mieszko and H-3 Leszko have been assigned to serve in the Squadron of Support Ships belonging to the 3rd Flotilla of Ships.
These tugboats are made to perform logistic support tasks at sea and in ports, as well as to carry out activities related to technical evacuation, support of rescue operations, transport of people and supplies, neutralization of pollution, and taking hazardous materials out of the water. The ice-class of the tugs allows them to operate in heavy ice conditions assisted by icebreakers. For towing works, the units are equipped with towing lifts with a capacity of up to 35 tonnes.
