More on the Chinese boat in South America

The Chinese-made towboat in South America apparently is a new made-and-delivered boat.

Here is the information from this Flickr photo.

P&O MBURUCUYA (7 May 2012) P&O CEIBO (Sept.2012) built by Yuexin Ocean Engineering Co (has a website in english) 45 x 16 x 1.83 m. Warsila diesel engines (3 x 1600kW) 6534 HP own: P&O Maritime Holdings Paraguaya SA, Asuncion

I don't understand all of that, and the design may look old to some experienced river hands' eyes, but according to this information, it is indeed new.
