Baird Maritime continues its monthly focused coverage of developments in the world of tugs and salvage operations. These two key segments of the maritime industry deserve mention as they are continually evolving to address a growing number of requirements from a growing number of customers around the globe.
Tugs • Towboats • Pusher Tugs • ATBs • Salvage • Autonomy • Marine Environment
This month’s highlighted vessels represent a small but diverse sample of the newbuild deliveries within these two segments that feature regularly on our pages. Two tugs are Canadian-designed, Turkish-built vessels for customers in Chile and Kenya. One is a Chinese-built inland tug whose area of operations encompasses the Yangtze river. Lastly, a new pushboat has been placed into service by a US operator along the ever busy Mississippi River.
The tug and salvage world is steadily growing, and readers are assured that Baird Maritime will continue to feature new developments within these segments over the coming days.
