The Svitzer Kent, sister ship to the Svitzer Deben, built in Vietnam by Damen for Svitzer shipped over to Rotterdam on the Happy Star. The Damen ASD 3212 tug has 2 powerful Caterpillar 3516C HD+ TA/D engines which give 5050 bkW (6772 bhp) at 1800 rpm.
After helping to berth the MSC Barbara in Felixstowe Berth 5 the Kent informs Harwich VTS that they had finished with the Barbara and would head down to the Landguard area to do a fire monitor test.
As Svitzer Kent was spraying water the Alexander B departed Felixstowe. The pilot said it would be a great photo opportunity bet the Kent could not open up one of the valves to have 2 jets working.
