Quebec-based Ocean Group has acquired Samson Tugboats, a company specialising in harbour towing in the Vancouver area since 2011.

In March 2020, Ocean Group announced that it had been awarded several major contracts in British Columbia, including one for harbour towing services in the Port of Vancouver, with three state-of-the-art tugs. After more than a year of operations, the company now has four tugs on site to serve its clients.

With the acquisition of Samson Tugboats and its two tugs, Ocean Group will now have six harbour tugs in the region.
