Damen Shipyards Group has delivered two ASD tugs to Ecuador-based DLEN.
Delivered to DLEN were the 24-metre ASD Nanda and the 23-metre ASD Isabella II (pictured), which were built at Damen’s yards in China and Vietnam, respectively. Both vessels were available in stock.
The vessels will give tug assistance during bunkering operations to the fleet of tankers of DLEN subsidiary Corpetrolsa as well as other vessels entering the ports of Esmeraldas and La Libertad.
The recently delivered ASD tugs are the fifth and sixth to join DLEN’s fleet of towage vessels, which were all built by Damen.
