EPN to take delivery of new Damen tug and dredger


Empresa Portuaria Nacional (EPN), the Nicaraguan port authority, is all set to take delivery of two newbuilds from Damen Shipyards Group.
To meet the client's requirements, Damen has executed a swift, efficient turnaround of the order.
The vessels, a Damen Stan Tug 2608 and a Cutter Suction Dredger CSD350 are completed and underway.
Damen has built both vessels at its yards in the Netherlands.

The Stan Tug 2608, named El Danto, was built at Damen Shipyards Gorinchem.
Damen built the CSD350 at Damen Dredging Equipment Nijkerk.
The vessel is travelling to Nicaragua disassembled, with loose parts in containers.
The dredger is expected to arrive in the country at the end of January 2015, after which she will be assembled and launched.
EPN will put the vessel to work on a number of projects.
These include maintenance work in Puerto Corinto, on several rivers and on Lake Managua.
