Damen Signs with KS&EW for Another ASD Tug
Damen Shipyards Group signed a contract with Karachi Shipyard & Engineering Works (KS&EW) for the materials package of a third ASD Tug 2009 under the Damen Technical Cooperation (DTC). The order follows a contract of two ASD Tugs 2009 signed in July 2019. KS&EW are building all three vessels with Damen’s support.
Construction of the first two vessels is now underway, following a steel cutting ceremony held on October 11, in Karachi. The two shipyards have been working together since 1988 and have delivered a number of vessels to various clients in Pakistan.
The two newbuild vessels will be operated by the Pakistan Navy to support their fleet.
