Svitzer takes delivery of tugboats
Svitzer has taken delivery of two tug boats from Damen Shipyards Group. The two tugboats are of the Damen ASD Tugs 3212 type and were built by Damen Song Cam Shipyard in Vietnam and arrived in Rotterdam at the end of October, when the heavy lift ship Happy Star delivered all 22 ships at once
The 32-meter-long ship with 80 tons bollard pull has gotten the names Svitzer Deben and Svitzer Kent, and are to be deployed in the ports of London (Gravesend) and Felixstowe. The delivery took place on time and less than six months after the order was placed, which was possible because the ships were built for storage.
Svitzer now has three of this type of tugboats in the UK and a total of 19 different kinds of Damen ASD Tugs across the UK.
