Today a Damen Stan Tug 1606 was delivered to her new owner: S. Walsh & Sons (UK), a company offering integrated and sustainable construction solutions for the Built Environment.
The Stan Tug 1606 is a very compact and strong tug from the Damen Stan Tug series. The improved design evolved from the STu 1 and the STu1605 designs, two Damen tug types of which, today, dozens of vessels sail and work worldwide to full satisfaction of their owners. Meanwhile, approximately 70 units of the STu 1606 type have been delivered to clients worldwide.
The Anita G was recently traded-in on a new vessel for another owner and was, since then, owned by Damen Shipyards Gorinchem.
Damen Trading displayed the tug at the Seawork 2013 exhibition, resulting in a widely displayed interest in this type of tug. This in turn resulted in the sale of the tug to S. Walsh & Sons. Walsh will deploy the Stan Tug 1606 to conduct tug assistance on the river Thames in London.
