Cold, hard operators
When the going gets tough, Damen’s reliable Ice Class Tugs get stuck in. Versatile operability includes icebreaking, towing, pushing, fire-fighting and ice management – in the harshest environments imaginable.
An icebreaker you can count on
With hulls optimised for tough conditions and scantlings compliant with RMRS, Finnish and Swedish regulations, you can count on Damen’s Ice Class Tugs in a freeze. A high freeboard keeps decks water free and a closed construction ensures easy ice removal and low corrosion.

Our success stories
Two ASD 3010 ICE Class Tugs busy in Taman
To assist with terminal operations in Taman, OTEKO ordered two Damen ASD 3010 ICE Class Tugs. Delivered in 2016, ‘Azov’ and ‘Adler’ have been busy ever since. Our quality level and swift delivery times played a big part in OTEKO’s decision.
ASD 2609 ICE deployed in Russian Far East
Nakhodka Marine Trade Port took delivery of an ASD Tug 2609 ICE, the first Damen Tug to join its fleet. While Nakhodka Bay is generally ice-free, winter temperatures can fall well below zero, so the hull is rated ICE3 and complies with ARC4.
