Damen delivers ASD Tug 2813 to Con.Tug in Italy

Damen Shipyards Group has delivered an ASD Tug 2813 to Con.Tug in Italy. The vessel, named Gioia Star, will operate in Gioia Tauro, one of the most important transhipment ports in the Mediterranean.

Con.Tug – a joint venture between Scafi and TIL – ordered the new tug from Damen in January 2020. The speed of the delivery has been facilitated by Damen’s practice of building standardised vessels in series and keeping them in stock, ready for order.

Though a standard model, Con.Tug has selected a number of options for its new vessel, including FiFi 1 firefighting capabilities as well oil recovery capability.

The ASD Tug 2813 is one of Damen’s next generation of tugs. Each of the vessels in this series is composed of new innovations and the further evolution of existing technology.

The tugs focus on delivering increased safety, sustainability, reliability and efficiency – including cost-efficiency over the lifetime of the vessel. These factors were among the reasons that Con.Tug selected Damen when ordering a new tug.

The 85-tonne bollard pull ASD 2813 features a smart layout with increased power on a very compact vessel, thanks to the significant level of stability provided by the hull.
