Italian operator orders Damen ASD Tugs

Italian tug operator Rimorchiatori Riuniti has recently placed an order with the Damen Shipyards Group for two ASD Tugs 2913. Rimorchiatori Riuniti operates more than 100 vessels across a range of maritime sectors, including harbour towage and offshore. Amongst the company’s fleet are a number of Damen vessels.

The most recent Damen vessel to join the Rimorchiatori Riuniti  fleet was an ASD Tug 2411, delivered to the client in September 2014. This was the company’s third Damen vessel, making the ASD Tugs 2913 numbers four and five respectively. The first ASD 2913 will be delivered in 2016 and followed by the second in 2017.

The ASD 2913 is a heavily built tug with rigid foundations, extra plate thickness, brackets and fendering. The two vessels for Rimorchiatori Riuniti will be built at Damen Shipyards Galati, Damen’s modern yard in Romania.

Damen will outfit the tugs with a series of special characteristics for the client, in order to ensure versatility to satisfy offshore tasks when needed. Customised features include FiFi 1, escort notation, oil recovery and an aft winch. One of the two tugs will have some features which will enable the tug to operate in LNG terminals.
