Damen Shipyards Group has recently signed a contract with Corps van Vletterlieden for a Stan Tug 1004, which will be employed on a wide range of tasks, including mooring, supply, crew transfer and diving support, in the Port of IJmuiden in the north of the Netherlands.

Damen expects to deliver the vessel in January next year. The speed of the delivery is facilitated by Damen’s practice of building standard vessels in series. As well as ensuring fast delivery, the company says this guarantees a reliable product.

Despite the standardised nature of its vessels, Damen is able to tailor them to its clients’ requirements with options. In the case of the Stan Tug 1004 for Vletterlieden, this includes installation of a crane, a generator set and coupling winches. These will enable the boat to fulfil its multi-purpose functionality.

Damen sales manager Vincent de Maat said: “This is Vletterlieden’s first Damen vessel and we’ve been discussing the possibility of delivering a boat to them for some time, so I’m really pleased with this contract. We are looking forward to working with the client as we make the vessel ready for their needs in the coming months.”

The basic hull and superstructure having been built at Damen Shipyards Changde in China, the Stan Tug 1004 is now at Damen Shipyards Hardinxveld in the Netherlands where she will be outfitted with the options ready for delivery to the client.

The Damen Stan Tug 1004 is known for its manoeuvrability and handling characteristics. The vessel incorporates the latest hull and skeg designs and developments in fender, fairlead and winch design.
