Damen tug named “Southampton”

Naming ceremony of tug Southampton performed by Lady Sponsor Ariane Labargue

One of four newly-built Damen tugs, now in service with Kotug Smit Towage, has been named in the Port of Zeebrugge.

The naming ceremony of the tug Southampton was performed by Lady Sponsor Ariane Labargue, the wife of Rik Goetinck, Vice President of the Port of Zeebrugge.

The Southampton is an ASD Tug 2913 and has a bollard pull in excess of 80 tonnes. The tug is renowned for its manoeuvrability and environmentally efficient performance.

Kotug Smit Towage has taken four tugs into service for its European harbour towage activities in 2017 and 2018.

Damen Sales Manager Mijndert Wiesenekker said, “We congratulate Kotug Smit on the occasion of the naming of their new ASD Tug 2913. Southampton is one of four Damen vessels recently delivered to the company. We are honoured to assist Kotug Smit in the continuing development of their European operations and wish them success with this latest addition to their fleet.”
