NEW TUGS: Italians order from Damen

Italian tug operator Rimorchiatori Riuniti has ordered a powerful Damen ASD Tug 2411. Reflecting the industry’s move to larger vessels, the new Damen tug, which has a 70-tonne bollard pull, will replace a smaller 1990-built, 40-tonne unit. The new vessel will be deployed in Genoa and is expected to arrive by the end of July.

Owned by the Delle Piane and Gavarone families, Rimorchiatori Riuniti has been operating its well-known orange tugboats in Genoa since 1922. Although the company has traditionally operated in the Tyrrhenian Sea and the ports of Genoa, Salerno and Malta, Rimorchiatori Riuniti recently extended its presence to the Adriatic. The company has a 25-strong fleet of harbour tugs, including some earlier Damen tugs.
