Damen delivers two of four ASD 3212 tugs to Smit Lamnalco

Damen has delivered two of four ASD 3212 tugs to towage and related marine services’ company Smit Lamnalco.

Arriving in Oman on 10 July, the two new tugs were directly deployed at a Oman India Fertiliser Company SAOC (OMIFCO) dedicated terminal in the Port of Sur and will be owned and operated by the joint venture Bahwan Lamnalco Company (BLC).

In November 207, Smit Lamnalco announced that it had decided to order four Damen ASD 3212 tugs following an award of two major contracts, in Oman and Australia.

Damen’s ability to deliver quickly from stock played a key role in Smit Lamnalco’s decision to choose the four Damen tugs.

Built in Damen Song Cam Shipyard in Vietnam, the two new arrivals, SL Murjan and SL Lulu, were customised to Smit Lamnalco’s requirements. This included a modified aft deck and the addition of an aft winch to the SL Lulu.
