Bugsier has boosted its fleet with the addition of a Damen ASD 2411 tug. The tug represents the first purchase of a Damen vessel for Bugsier.
“Damen is experienced in building tugs, and we are very experienced in operating them,” commented Bugsier Business Development Manager, Sven Schr?der. “Therefore, we know what we want and we have ideas on how to improve things.”
The Bugsier 22 was built at Damen Shipyards Sharjah (DSSh) in the United Arab Emirates. DSSh is one of the newest additions to Damen’s worldwide network of shipyards. The yard recently won the ‘Best New Build Yard’ award at the International Maritime Awards, held at the Shiptek 2016 conference.
“We worked closely with Damen’s Sharjah yard in the construction of this vessel – our technical department closely monitored the entire construction process with good communication with the management team and also the site management.”
Mr Schr?der concludes by pointing out the advantages of working with Damen: “Short lead times, relatively short delivery times and good value for money – we are extremely pleased with the result.”
“We are very proud to sell our first tug to Bugsier in this very significant celebratory year for them,” said Damen Sales Director North, West & South Europe Frank de Lange. “We look forward to continuing this business relationship well into the future.”
