Svitzer takes over contracts and expands fleet in Portugal

Svitzer has signed a deal with Portuguese Rebosado, meaning that the Danish company is taking over several arrangements in the port in Setubal and will double its fleet in Portugal.

Svitzer has doubled the number of vessels controlled by the carrier in Portugal after it has taken over several deals from the company Rebosado, reveals the Danish towage carrier in a press release.

With the addition of seven vessels, Svitzer's Portuguese fleet has now increased to 15 vessels.

The new vessels from Rebosado have been taken over on time charter in connection with agreements with several customers in the port.

"By expanding our operations into Setubal Svitzer can now offer comprehensive port cover for the main ports in southern Portugal, thereby providing our customers with a better service. Utilising both the Svitzer and Rebosado fleet we can increase the reliability and efficiency of our Portuguese operation," says Managing Director of Svitzer Europe, Kasper Friis Nilaus, in a comment.

In Portugal, Svitzer has businesses in Lisbon, Sines, Portimão, and Setubal.
