Damen awarded contract by Engage Marine for three ASD Tugs 3212

Damen Shipyards Group has been awarded a contract by Australia-based Engage Marine for the delivery of three ASD Tug 3212. The tug is one of Damen’s Next Generations Tugs Series.

The vessels in the series combine proven technologies with cutting edge innovation to take an evolutionary step forwards in terms of safety, sustainability, reliability and efficiency.

Engage Marine will operate the three tugs to provide towage services for the Port of Abbot Point. The company has recently been awarded a Non-Exclusive Towage Licence by North Queensland Bulk Ports Corporation.

The ASD Tug 3212 will bring to the contract excellent seakeeping behaviour, superb manoeuvrability and outstanding towing characteristics – with 85 tonnes bollard pull.

As a vessel from Damen’s standardised portfolio, the shipbuilder constructs the ASD Tug 3212 for stock in order to facilitate rapid delivery. As a result, Damen will deliver the three tugs to Engage Marine in Q3 this year.
