Damen ASD 2810 tugs delivered to Arc Towage

ARC Towage of Trinidad & Tobago has taken delivery of the last of a series of four Damen ASD 2810 Tugs.

All four have been delivered in less than 18 months. The MV Manatee and MV Atlantic Legacy left Damen Shipyards Galati (Romania) and have safely arrived in the port of Chaguaramas on the 12th of December, Trinidad, ready to start work on January 1, Damen said in a statment.

All four have a 60-tonne bollard pull and maximum speed of 12.9 knots. The sister vessels have been adapted to comply with the latest international LNG handling regulations.

They will provide towage, escorting, berthing and unberthing services for LNG carriers under a long-term contract for a leading energy company.

The vessels are equipped with ‘rig savers’ on all engines: remote shut-off valves, remote-closing air intakes, gas detection systems and explosion-proof lighting.

Damen Shipyards is also responsible for commissioning and the hand-over of the vessels. The first two (MV Kairi and MV Guapo Warrior) are already working and they are being used for crew training and familiarisation purposes.

Damen will provide after sales support from its Service Hub in Curaçao.
