Damen Secures Second Order from Port of Caen

The Port of Caen/Chamber of Commerce & Industry Caen Normandy (Chambre de Commerce et d’industrie de Caen Normandie) has placed an order for a Damen ASD Tug 2810.

This follows Damen winning a public tender on December 8th, 2015. The new Damen vessel will be deployed in the latter, hence its name Cherbourg 1.

The main duties of the new tug are the berthing and de-berthing of ferries and different kinds of vessels that call into Cherbourg and carrying out light offshore duties and dredging assistance.

Damen’s ASD 2810 is a versatile design, which is equally suited to typical harbor duties such as mooring and towing, as well as operations in open water.

The Port Authority asked Damen to carry out some modifications to the standard ASD 2810 including an aft deck double drum winch, towing pins, stern roller and cargo rails to allow it to carry out offshore jobs such as towing, anchor handling and buoy deployment.

Including the requested modification Damen was able to accommodate a short delivery time and the new vessel is due to be delivered by end-August.

Upon handover, the vessel will sail with a joint Damen and Port of Caen crew from Damen Shipyards Galati in Romania to Cherbourg.
