Two new tugs have arrived at Sheerness from Panama.
Svitzer Helen and Svitzer Celia were built in Hong Kong for a project in South America but when it was delayed they were diverted to the UK.
Once in Britain they were renamed Svitzer Monarch and Svitzer Ganges, and joined their sister vessels Svitzer Victory, Svitzer Harty and Svitzer Intrepid at Sheerness as part of the Medway fleet.
They can now often be seen from Sheerness seafront as they sail out to meet visiting cargo ships and tankers.
Both tugs are 32 metres, with 5,000 horse-power engines, and can pull 85 tons.
They are classified for escorting and fire-fighting duties.
