Innovation, Damen's latest design, a RSD 2513 Tug visits Felixstowe on a trial 310718

Svitzer's Felixstowe branch gets to experience one of Damen's new designs, a RSD 2513 tug which has been touring some European ports. With a bollard pull of 75 tonnes she is bigger than the 2411's. Innovation is a rear stern drive tug that looks like a kids toy but looks are deceiving as she rides like a dream and performs well on a powered indirect. With a Harwich Haven pilot onboard the Innovation, the plan was to go centre lead aft and Try out her handling with a powered indirect around the 90° Beach End turn out of the harbour.

Damen tug trials- Escort towage. Fantastic day for some 👍

making the tow rope twang like a guitar string... and balancing on a knife edge. A superb day for making the Damen tug trials happen as well as a little 👍
