Focus on Tug and Salvage Operations

Focus on Tug and Salvage Operations


This week on Baird Maritime, we once again take a closer look at new tugs and salvage vessels entering service worldwide. The lineup of reviewed vessels includes ship handling tugs for China and Thailand, a multi-role harbour tug for India, and a hybrid electric barge handling boat for US inland waters.

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

Considering the inherent versatility of many new vessels in the global towage industry, it is not surprising that tugs are also seeing increasing use within the emergency services sector, which we will also look into this week.
