Recently we narrated you about Damen Shipyards Group and their tugs. Today we are going to present you the analogue for Dutch company – Leningrad Shipyard Pella. Is it really the analogue, we suggest you to think over.

Here is the last product of Pella – Tug 623 of project 16609. It was recently flout out. This is a multifunctional tug. As all the tugs within 16609 project the 623 Tug can do berthing and towing operations, escort operations at 10 knots, bring ships afloat, put out a fire at vessels and inshore buildings, participate in salvage, rescue and special operations, transport a cargo and brake ice. All this operation 623 Tug can do in harbours, inshore and at the R2 navigation area.

P.S.: 28, September the Russian stevedoring company JSC Port of Vostochny got into its fleet Damen ASD Tug 2810 named “Kuzbass”. The company is planning to purchase more tugs of this type. Will they send their offer to Leningrad shipyard or not? It’s very interesting offer.
