Damen Stan Tug 1606 Delivered

Scrabster Harbour Trust (UK) has taken delivery of a new harbour tug/workboat, a Damen Stan Tug 1606.

The vessel, named Highlanders, will replace their current workboat which was built in 1976. The new tug will undertake pilotage, towing, general harbour and maintenance duties.

Scrabster Harbour in northern Scotland is attracting much larger vessels and cargoes in need of larger tugs for their assistance.

The steel hulled, twin screw vessel has a 16 tonne bollard pull, and is also equipped with a dredging plough and A-frame for lifting. The fast delivery of the vessel, facilitated by Damen’s availability of stock vessels, combined with their reputation of reliability, contributed to the choice of vessel.

The acquisition was assisted by funding support from the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA).

Sandy Mackie, Scrabster Port Manager, said:  “The delivery of this vessel is another signal of our commitment to provide the high standards of facilities and services required by existing and future port users. The new vessel will improve marine traffic control and safety at Scrabster, allowing the Trust to better discharge its duties to those who use the harbour and protect the well-being of the port environment and the local community.

“We chose Damen because of their fine reputation and track record together with their level of service and customer care. We are grateful to the NDA for their financial assistance and continued support of development at Scrabster.”
