Damen Shipyards has delivered the ASD 3213 ‘Tanok’ to Colombian tug operator Intertug S.A.

Intertug operates the country’s most modern tug fleet in terms of horsepower and fleet age. The Damen ASD 3213 has a bollard pull of 86.5 t and 80 t astern and is one of the most powerful harbor tugs in the world. In addition, Intertug ordered an ASD 3212, which will be delivered from Damen Shipyards Galati (Romania) at the end of May, 2012.

The booming Latin American market meant that Intertug needed the vessel as soon as possible. Damen could offer a delivery time, from stock, of just two weeks. Additionally, Intertug wanted a vessel which provides continuous service reliability and with high residual value.
Tanok was built at Damen Song Cam Shipyard in Vietnam and is equipped with two Caterpillar C280-8/MC engines, giving it a total power of 7,268 Horsepower. The new tug is equipped with a 15 m crane with a 5 t lifting capacity and, although a Damen 'standard’, the ASD 3213 offers high levels of crew comfort and daylight accommodation, which was one of Intertug’s requirements. The Damen standard ASD 3213 has a double drum fore and aft winch, Fi-Fi 1 and a large stern roller with towing pins to guide the towing line in adverse weather conditions.

The latest addition to the fleet will be providing offshore assistance in Dos Bocas for Mexican National Oil Company PEMEX.
