Two Damen Stan Tugs 2608, the ‘Ibrahim 1’ and the ‘Jacques’, were recently shipped from the anchorage of Halong Bay, Haiphong (Vietnam) to Casablanca, Morocco.
The tugs were transported to Morocco by ‘Atlantic Winter’, an heavy lift vessel with a lifting capacity of 800 tonnes chartered by Danish carrier Thorco from Reederei Heino Winter. After having taken the necessary preparations and rigging of the lifting gear, both tugs were nicely loaded into their prepositioned cradles on deck in a two-day operation.
The tugs were ordered by JL Tug and Fedala Tug. Both are Moroccan, privately owned, maritime services companies that have long-time relationships with Damen Shipyards. The ‘Ibrahim 1’ will be operated by JL Tug in the Port of Jorf Lasfar and the ‘Jacques’ will be operated by Fedala Tug in the Port of Mohammedia.
