Focus on Tug and Salvage Operations

Focus on Tug and Salvage Operations


This month’s featured tugs once again include newbuild deliveries to clients across a broad geographic scope, from North America to Western Europe, the Mediterranean and the Far East. Some are multi-role vessels with secondary emergency response capability to better serve other stakeholders within their respective homeports.

Tugs • Towboats • Pusher Tugs • ATBs • Salvage • Autonomy • Marine Environment

Two of the featured tugs this month are notable for utilising compact catamaran hulls for greater stability. These unique vessels are already in operation with a customer in the UK.
