Fairplay Towage Group is continuing its recent growth strategy with the delivery of two newbuild tugs for operation in Germany and Poland and the placing of an order for three further vessels, all from Damen Shipyards.

In the same week it was announced that Fairplay had signed a further contract for three additional Damen tugs comprising two more Reversed Stern Drive designs similar to Fairplay-90 and 91 above, along with a larger Damen ASD Tug 2813. Damen’s practice of building for stock will allow delivery of all three before the end of 2023. Both designs are capable vessels, the builder’s documentation quoting a standard bollard pull figure of 80t, the RSD 2513 designed for harbour operations, the ASD 2813 suitable for terminal operations and coastal towing.
