Damen: second LNG tug on way to Trinidad
The second of four Damen ASD Tugs 2810 for ARC Towage (Spain) has left for Trinidad.
There, the Guapo Warrior will join the fleet of Joint Venture company ARC Towage, which will provide the gas terminal berthing services for a significant energy industry player in Trinidad and Tobago, according to a statement by Damen.
The tugs have been and are being built at Damen Shipyards Galati (Romania) and will be delivered by Damen Services teams in Trinidad and Tobago before January 1st, 2015. The vessels will provide towage services for escorting, berthing and un-berthing (large) LNG-vessels.
