New Damen ASD Tug 2810 for Louis Meyer christened

On 14 August 2020 the naming ceremony was held at Damen Shipyards Gorinchem for Peter Wessels.

The new Damen ASD Tug 2810 was handed over to Neue Schleppdampfschiffsreederei Louis Meyer GmbH & Co KG (Louis Meyer), which is based in Hamburg.

The contract for the new vessel was signed exactly four months earlier, on 14 April. The speed of construction was made possible by Damen’s long-standing policy of both offering a wide range of standard designs that can then be customised to meet the exact needs of each customer, and of building for stock to guarantee fast deliveries.

This particular vessel had been built for stock at Damen Song Cam Shipyard and then transported to Europe to meet just such a need as this.

The 28m ASD Tug 2810 is one of Damen’s most popular vessels, with over 150 sold since its introduction. With 60 tonnes of bollard pull, they are also highly manoeuvrable, and are built to a rugged design well known for its reliability and durability.

They can be found working in ports and harbours around the world. Peter Wessels features a number of options, most notably an aft winch which equips it for coastal towage of barges. It also has been fitted with a sewage treatment plant, a boiler and heated windows.
