This week, 10 Damen Stan Tugs arrived in Gorinchem: 4 x STu 1606, 4 x STu 1205 and 2 x STtu 1004. The tugs were built at Damen Shipyards Changde, one of Damen’s six locations in China.
Both Damen’s Stan Tug and ASD Tug series are regularly built for delivery from stock, which reduces delivery times to a minimum.
The 10 STu’s are fully outfitted, tested and ‘ready to go’.
