Swire Pacific commissioned eight anchor-handers from a Singapore before the latest downturn and brought this one into service in 2014. They have about 18,000 bhp available and claim a bollard pull of more than 220 tonnes. They are big ships with a lot of equipment available, if the specs are to be believed, and this one at least is working out in Brazil. They are Havyard 844LXs.
