In September Tsavliris arranged towage of the Rescue/Survey Vessel "OCEAN INVESTIGATOR" (GT 3,327 - DWT 2,690) from Ambelaki, Salamis Island, Greece, to Tuzla shipyard, Turkey, for maintenance/repairs.
Tsavliris despatched the AHTS "FOTEINI Z" (BHP 5,150 – BP 65), from Piraeus, in conjuction with tug operator Messrs Zouros, and towage commenced on 3 September. Due to adverse weather conditions (gale force winds 8 B and waves of 4 m.), the convoy altered course on 6 September in order to shelter for two days in the area south of Türkeli and Pasalimani Islands, Turkey.
During the Canakkale Strait passage, a coastal safety tug provided escort services. The convoy arrived at destination on 10 September and the operation was successfully completed on 12 September.
