Multraship’s Damen ASD tugs named

Two Damen ASD 3212 tugs for towage and salvage specialist Multraship were named on 24 June at Terneuzen, the Netherlands. The state-of-the-art Multratug 29 and Multratug 30 were built at the Damen Song Cam Shipyard in Vietnam, and operate for Multraship as sister vessels to Multratug 19.

The 32 m tugs, which have a bollard pull of 82 tonnes, are notable for their sea-keeping behaviour, manoeuvrability and outstanding towing characteristics. Multratug 29 and Multratug 30 were named respectively by Mrs Rita de Ruijter- Ribbens and Mrs Els Otten- Muller.

Leendert Muller, managing director of Multraship, says, “These tugs are already operating for Multraship, and proving their worth on a daily basis. They are superbly equipped to meet the growing demand for Multraship’s services in both the harbour towage and offshore energy sectors, as well as being equipped to operate as emergency response vessels.”

The naming ceremony was organised in such a way that it not only involved invited guests, but could also be witnessed by the general public from the pier.

Multraship is a leading Dutch towage and salvage company. It is a division of the Muller Maritime Group, which has been engaged in the shipping industry for more than 230 years. The company’s core activities include harbour towage, salvage & wreck removal, ocean towage and support to offshore energy & dredging industries.
