Damen notes that although this is their 15th Damen tug ordered over the past 20 years, it will be their first 32-meter ASD 3212 for Italian waters.
“The Damen ASD 3212 is a multi-tasking tug designed to the smallest details using the best of Damen shipbuilding knowledge and valuable input from several clients,” explains Damen Regional Sales Manager Andrea Trevisan. “Scafi’s new tug will have a bollard pull exceeding 80 tonnes, fulfilling the Italian Flag requirements with notations such a Fire Fighting 1, escort, oil product salvage and oil recovery tug.”
The tug will be built at Damen’s Song Cam Shipyard in Vietnam.
The ASD 3212 tug has been designed to operate in all circumstances and features numerous innovations, including a completely revised hull form and a higher bow, resulting in better speed and a dry foredeck according to Damen.
