Albwardy Damen delivers two ASD 2811 Tugs to Rawabi Vallianz Offshore Services

At a ceremony held on 10 March 2022 at Albwardy Damen Sharjah, UAE, two new Damen ASD (Azimuth Stern Drive) Tugs 2811 were handed over to Rawabi Vallianz Offshore Services (RVOS).

A joint venture between Rawabi Holding, a Saudi diversified conglomerate and Vallianz Holdings Limited of Singapore, RVOS is a Saudi leading supplier of offshore services and support in Saudi Arabia and the GCC region.

The new tugs, named Rawabi Dreamer and Rawabi Victory, will be contracted to RVOS client to support their marine activities.

The contract for the supply of the tugs was signed by Albwardy Damen and RVOS just three months previously. The fast delivery was due to the Damen Group’s policy of building vessels for stock while allowing for modifications and customisation prior to delivery.

The ASD Tug 2811 is a next-generation vessel featuring advanced connectivity to ensure optimal performance and efficiency.

It is also designed to meet the increasing demand for higher bollard pull in compact tugs as commercial vessels get bigger while the harbours stay the same size. At just 28s in length, it delivers 60 tonnes of bollard pull and is highly manoeuvrable.
