Meyer’s Group orders two Damen ASD 2913 Tugs for new Panama Canal locks

March 15th, 2017 | No Comments

The Meyer’s Group has ordered two, powerful Damen ASD 2913 Tugs to operate in the newly expanded Panama Canal. At an official signing ceremony at the Panama Maritime XIII World Conference, Michel Mittelmeyer, Chief Executive Officer said the Meyer’s Group was awarded a contract last year to offer towage support in the new Panama Canal locks. These new tugs fulfil the requirements of the Panama Canal Authority as more powerful vessels, of at least 80 tonnes bollard pull, are needed given the ever-increasing size of vessels, adds Mr Mittelmeyer.
