Dutch shipbuilding conglomerate Damen Shipyards Group signed a contract with Karachi Shipyard & Engineering Works (KS&EW) for a Damen Technical Cooperation (DTC) Material Package.

The contract will see KS&EW constructing two Damen ASD Tugs 2009 with Damen's support, said the company which operates 36 shipbuilding and repair yards.

The contract was signed on behalf of KS&EW by General Manager Shipbuilding Commodore (R) Saleem Iqbal SI(M) and by regional director Teun Haverkort on behalf of Damen.

Both shipyards have been working together since 1988 and have successfully delivered numerous vessels to various clients in Pakistan.

The ASD Tug 2009 is a proven, standardised design featuring sea-keeping behavior, superb manoeuvrability and outstanding towing characteristics. The two vessels will be operated by the Pakistan Navy to support their fleet.
