Towage and salvage specialist Multraship has bolstered its fleet of specialised tugs and multi-purpose vessels with the addition of the Damen newbuilding ASD 3213 tug Multratug 3.

On September 30, the vessel will embark on its delivery voyage from Vietnam, where it was built by Damen Shipyards, to Terneuzen, Multraship’s home port in The Netherlands. Thereafter it will be employed principally in the River Scheldt area in a harbour towage and salvage role. With a maximum bollard pull of 94.7 tonnes, an overall length of 105.4 ft, and a beam of 43.6 ft, the vessel is capable of a speed of 14.3 knots.

Multraship managing director Leendert Muller said, “Multraship’s commitment to the Scheldt area is well-known, and was further reinforced two years ago when it launched Antwerp Towage NV, a 50/50 joint venture with Fairplay Towage. Antwerp Towage has been a great success, and we have increased our client base and number of calls in Antwerp significantly. Multratug 3 represents the latest phase in our overall strategic plans for renewal and expansion. We believe that it is now the strongest tug on the Scheldt and, with its FiFi1 capabilities, it is set to play an important role in future emergency response operations in the area.”
