Italian towing company Fratelli Neri S.p.A. has expanded its fleet with the delivery of three new Damen workboats. The trio of vessels will be based in the company’s home port of Livorno, on the Tuscan coast. Damen delivered all the vessels from stock; completing the final outfitting works within a timescale of three and a half months.
Fratelli Neri will mobilise the Stan Tug 1606, called Pacini, on shallow water operations in coastal and inland waters around Livorno. For such duties, this compact and sturdy Stan Tug design is an ideal match. As well as fire-fighting apparatus, the Italian-flagged Pacini is also equipped with an aft towing winch.
