Damen delivers ASD Tug 2811 to Brodospas

New vessel named Hrabri in ceremony in Croatia

On 22 March 2024 the Damen Shipyards Group delivered an ASD Tug 2811 to Croatian vessel operator Brodospas.

On 27 March, Brodospas held a ceremony, welcoming the vessel to its fleet and naming it Hrabri. The cutting-edge vessel boasts 60 tonnes of bollard pull, with which it will enhance harbour towage operations in the ports of Split and Ploče on the Dalmatian coast.

Brodospas’ decision to entrust Damen Shipyards with the construction of the ASD Tug 2811 results from the company’s positive experience with Damen vessels to date. In recent years, Damen has delivered two Anchor Handling Vessels and two Fast Crew Supply Vessels to the company.

The ASD Tug 2811 has been developed to provide a boost in safety, sustainability, reliability, and efficiency in operations. It features a flush fore deck, optimised for multiple towing modes, providing the tug with extreme versatility. Its ergonomic, user friendly design offers easy accessibility to winches, bollards, and fairleads.

Based on a proven, standard design, Damen is able to tailor the ASD Tug 2811 to the specific requirements of its clients. For Brodospas, this includes installation of a firefighting system, towing hook, and for the vessel to sail under Croatian flag.

The tug was constructed at Damen Song Cam Shipyard in Vietnam. The yard, which has just celebrated its tenth anniversary, constructs up to 40 Damen vessels each year. From Vietnam, the ASD Tug 2811 sailed on its own keel to Croatia, passing the Cape of Good Hope en route.
