Seven for TNG

Mexican shipyard Talleres Navales del Golfo (TNG) is building seven tugs for national company Pemex.

The yard said the C-130s are 31.5 metres in length, with a bollard pull of 50 tons.

TNG has been contracted to complete four of them, and will cut steel plates for the other three.

Delivery is set for June 2015.

Veracruz-based TNG is owned by Hong Kong conglomerate Hutchison Whampoa.
