Multraship's Damen ASD Tugs Make Names for Themselves

Two Damen ASD 3212 tugs for leading towage and salvage specialist Multraship have been 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 tons, are notable for their excellent sea-keeping behavior, superb maneuverability and outstanding towing characteristics. The 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 harbor towage and offshore energy sectors, as well as being equipped to operate as emergency response vessels.”

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