Clyde Marine Services has taken delivery of its first Damen ASD Tug. The Damen ASD 2310 has been named CMS Warrior and she will join a 12-strong fleet of tugs and crew tenders at the Scottish company.
Based in Greenock, Scotland, Clyde Marine Services was established in 1913 and has a long history of working with Damen vessels. The first experience of a Damen vessel was when the marine services company bought a Damen Pushy Cat in the mid-eighties. The fleet includes Damen Stan Tugs 1906 and 1907, as well as two Stan Tug 1s.
The company’s five harbour tugs service all ports on the River and Firth of Clyde, including Campbeltown. Clyde Marine Services also has a coastal tug Bruiser, operating in the Clyde/Belfast/Liverpool area.
The latest addition to the fleet is a Damen ASD 2310 Tug with a 52-tonne bollard pull ahead. Classed by Bureau Veritas, the new tug has spacious accommodation for six crew. Warrior is a highly versatile vessel, suitable for all kinds of jobs
