Edison Chouest teams up with Damen to build 13 ASD tugs

These will be deployed on two major maritime projects for which ECO has recently won contracts. The new vessels will be mostly based on Damen tug designs. The vessels will be built using ECO’s network of five shipyards in the U.S. using Damen’s support. Some of the tugs will be used for a contract that ECO won earlier this year with a new Corpus Christi-based LNG export terminal. The agreement is for the supply of four escort tugs with a bollard pull of 80 tonnes to operate at this new LNG terminal in Texas. The Damen tugs will be of the escort/mooring ASD 3212 design. ECO has won a contract in Alaska for the ship escort-response duties out of Prince William Sound from July 2018 for which it will require nine high-powered escort tugs. For this highly environmentally sensitive project, Damen and ECO will work together to deliver
four more ASD 3212 tugs with a bollard pull of 70 tonnes each and fi ve of some of the most powerful ASD tugs ever built; the ASD 4517 with a bollard pull of over 150 tonnes. The ASD 4517 is a joint Damen and ECO developed escort tug specifically designed for the challenging weather conditions in the Prince William
Sound.

U.S. marine group Edison Chouest Offshore (ECO) has agreed cooperation with Dutch yard group Damen to build a total of 13 heavy-duty mooring assistance and escort tugs.
