Damen ASD Tug 2411

Leading Italian tug operator RimorchiatoriRiuniti has ordered a Damen ASD Tug 2411.Reflecting the industry’s move to larger vessels, the new Damen tug, which has a 70-metric-ton bollard pull, will replace a smaller 40-metric-ton unit built in 1990. The new vessel will be deployed in Genoa and is expected to arrive by end-July.

Owned by the DellePiane and Gavarone families, RimorchiatoriRiuniti has been operating its orange tugboats in Genoa since 1922.Although the company has traditionally operated in the Tyrrhenian Sea and the ports of Genoa, Salerno and Malta, RimorchiatoriRiuniti recently extended its presence to the Adriatic.

The company has a fleet of 25 harbor tugs, including some earlier Damen tugs. Alberto Dellepiane, Director of RimorchiatoriRiuniti, said the reasons the company chose a Damen vessel was the high quality offered, the reliability and the fact Damen vessels maintain their value.

Andrea Trevisan, Damen Sales Manager Sales Area North, West and South Europe, said, “We are delighted to welcome RimorchiatoriRiunitiagain as a customer and look forward to develop a long-term partnership with such an important and respectable owner.”

 “As Damen builds vessels for stock, we could also deliver RimorchiatoriRiuniti’s brand new tug in just over six months”, Trevisan pointed out. The ASD 2411 Tug for RimorchiatoriRiuniti will be fully compliant with Italian Flag State regulations.
