by Marine-Pilots.com - published on 24 January 2020
The Port of Townsville, northern Australia’s largest multi-cargo port, is expanding its fleet of pilot boats to four.
The Port has awarded Hart Marine a $3 million contract to build a 17.3m ORC vessel that is due for delivery later in 2020. The new high-tech vessel will be slightly longer but have the same design features as the PV Osprey which was delivered by Hart Marine in late 2017.
