In spite of the global economic downturn of 2010, builders in Eastern Malaysia such as Shin Yang Shipyard maintained a steady output in 2010. As a member of the Shin Yang Group of Companies, the shipyard has extensive support and in some cases can market to its own sister companies.   The anchor handling tug Danem 19 was launched from the Shin Yang Shipyard for the Shin Yang Shipping Corporation as one of several vessels added to the fleet in 2010. At 164 ft by 41 ft the 4400 HP Danum 119 is a handy sized AHT with lots of versatility. With a 54.8-tonne bollard pull and a 12-knot cruising speed the vessel features a 72 x 33-ft aft-deck with winches for anchor handling and towing as well as providing excellent cargo capacity. The main winch has an 80-tonne capacity with 150-tonne braking power. A pair of 5-tonne capstans with a pair of 10-tonne tugger winches and a set of shark jaws and towing pins round out the anchor handling capabilities.   Built to a design by Conan Wu & Associates of Singapore the vessel is powered by a pair of Cummins QSK60-M diesels each rated for 1641 kW (2200 HP) at 1800 RPM. The engines turn fixed pitch props through Twin Disc MG5600 gears with 5.71:1 reductions. A pair of Cummins 265 kW QSM355 diesels provide auxiliary power.   Accommodation is provided for up to 27 crew members. Tankage includes 500 cubic meters of fuel, 242 cubic meters of potable water, 19 cu m of dispersant and 16 cu m of foam
