June 29 - Two Damen ASD 3213 tugs for towage and salvage specialist Multraship have been named Multratug 29 and Multratug 30 at a ceremony in Terneuzen, the Netherlands.

The 32 m tugs, which have a bollard pull of 82 tonnes, were built at the Damen Song Cam Shipyard in Vietnam, and will operate as sister vessels to Multratug 19.

"These tugs are already operating for Multraship, and proving their worth on a daily basis," said Multraship managing director Leendert Muller.

"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."
