Towage and salvage specialist Multraship continued its fleet renewal program with the order of two new Damen ASD 2810-type tugs with state-of-the-art FiFi 1 firefighting capabilities. The tugs, to be named Multratug 26 and Multratug 27, are building in Romania for delivery in June/July 2013.

Contracts for the two tugs were signed during the course of Multraship’s annual client gathering in Terneuzen on April 18.

Multraship managing director Leendert Muller said, “The new tugs will be mostly engaged in harbor towage activities in the Zeeland Seaports and Antwerp areas. In addition to their primary duties, they will also be on standby, ready to respond in the event of fire- or explosion-related emergencies in the western and central part of the River Scheldt, as part of a February 2013 commitment entered into with the Zeeland Safety Region to keep two FiFi 1 tugs on standby.”

The tugs will have a minimum bollard pull of 62.5 tons and a maximum speed of 13.5 knots. They are being built at Damen Shipyards Galati, Romania, in which country Multraship has a representative office and provides towage and salvage services as part of its strategic coverage of the Black Sea area.
