Salvage, Escort Vessels and Tugs
Tugs play an important part in the operation of many of the world’s largest ships. Fleets of enormously powerful harbour tugs escort large vessels into port and assist with their manoeuvring in the close confines of harbours and restricted areas.
Larger sea-going tugs undertake many of the world’s longest tows, repositioning the world's oil and gas rigs to destinations thousands of miles away.
Vessels serving within the world’s diverse salvage fleet are also ready to respond when ships get into difficulty, providing firefighting services, towage and other emergency services.
