Ecuador’s Corpetrolsa Group orders three Damen tugs

The Stan Tug 1205 and Stan Tug 1606 models will support bunkering operations at the Esmeraldas and La Libertad ports.

   Damen Shipyards Group has signed a contract with Corpetrolsa Group of Guayaquil, Ecuador, for the supply of three tugs: one Stan Tug 1205 and two Stan Tug 1606 models. The tugs will be operated by Corpetrolsa subsidiary DLEN S.A. to support its bunkering operation.
   Corpetrolsa Group operates its own fleet of tankers in the 2,000- to 7,000-DWT range, and the three new tugs will be used at the Ecuadorean ports of Esmeraldas and La Libertad. The vessels already were in stock at Damen Shipyards Gorinchem and will be supplied in their standard format without modifications. 
   In all, the time from first contact to the signing of contract was no more than two months, with the delivery of the vessels in just an additional two months, Damen said.
    “Ecuador is modernizing rapidly as a country,” said Vicente Bustos of Corpetrolsa Group. “In order to do this, we need the best technology to the highest standards available. These new tugs will be in tune with that drive to achieve our goals.”
