ADNOC Logistics & Services announced the acquisition of six line boats to provide critical marine services across petroleum ports in Abu Dhabi. All six vessels are the Damen Stan Tug 1606 type, and were contracted directly from Sharjah-based Albwardy Damen, as part of ADNOC Group’s commitment to boost In-Country Value across its operations. The steel hulled, twin screw vessels are powered by two Caterpillar engines providing nearly 16 tonnes of bollard pull. With their proven design, these line boats enable ADNOC L&S to continue providing reliable and efficient operations to the Petroleum Ports Authority in Abu Dhabi. Line boats are multi-purpose boats used by ADNOC L&S’ Logistics and Marine Services for assisting in berthing and unberthing tankers, and handling hoses, at the oil terminals. The contract was awarded in July 2020 to Albwardy Damen, a subsidiary of Damen Shipyards Group, a Netherlands-headquartered global shipbuilding, defense and engineering services company. Four of the vessels were delivered in May 2021 and another two in June 2021. Damen Shipyards Group has previously delivered 33 vessels to ADNOC Group across its operating companies.
