Sigrist & Damerow attribute very similar year names to Ur-Ningirsu year (ca) and to Ur-Nammu year (j) and these tablets could belong to either. RIME 3/2 (Frayne 1997, 18) attributes this year name to Ur-Nammu.

Muazzez Çig (AOAT 25, p. 78) suggests the possibility of reading AOAT 25, p. 78 10, rev.3-4 as ur-a[b-ba] ensi2. If this is correct then the year name on this tablet is more likely to correspond to Ur-Namma rather than Ur-Ningirsu.
