A naming ceremony took place in Malta last week for a tug built by the Dutch shipbuilder Damen.

The tug named St. Angelo will provide port towage services and environmental assistance, and will also be able to serve the island’s LNG needs, by operating at Delimara LNG terminal, according to a Damen statement.

To remind, Malta started importing LNG in January 2017 via the floating storage unit (FSU) Armada LNG Mediterrana located in the Marsaxlokk Bay.

Damen said it built the new vessel for Tug Malta, part of the Rimorchiatori Riuniti Group.

The tug has been equipped with a gas protection system, double drum render recovery winch, firefighting system and oil recovery capabilities, the shipbuilder added.
