Unterweser orders two ASD 2411
URAG - Unterweser Reederei AG - the Bremerhaven-based port and offshore towage provider based in Bremerhaven, has placed an order for two Damen ASD 2411 tugs. This contract follows an order placed in September 2013 for an identical vessel which is under management by Lütgens & Reimers (L&R) in Hamburg. L&R is an affiliated company of URAG, both being part of the LIinnhoff Schiffahrt Group.
The initial vessel, named Prompt, was ready for delivery within three months of the contract being signed and it was the positive experience with her that lead to the order from URAG.
Damen has delivered ASD Tugs 2411 all over the world. Both newbuilds, like the Prompt, will be built and outfitted according to the customer’s requirements at Damen’s partner yard in Vietnam, before being delivered to Germany in early 2015.
URAG has been in business for over 120 years and currently operates a fleet of 17 harbour and offshore tugs.
