KOTUG demonstrates its ongoing commitment to deliver the highest level of sustainable towage operations and to the care for the environment and the occupational health and safety of its people through its Integrated Company Management System.


The KOTUG Integrated Management System provides the structure to manage all of KOTUG’s services with a strong focus on Health, Safety, Environment, and Quality the overall aim to achieve business objectives, improve performance,  increase customer satisfaction and prevent any kind of injury or damage. (Zero spill & Zero Incidents)


Our management system is certified for ISO 9001 (Quality Management Systems), ISO 14001 (Environmental Management Systems) and ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems). For ISO 14001 & ISO 45001 vessel visits to check compliance are conducted by leading class society Lloyd’s Register. Also, our ISM (International Safety Management) system is certified by Lloyd’s Register and even includes voluntary certification on a selection of our fleet below 500 gross tonnage. The Integrated Management System ensures compliance with MLC and security requirements.


As we work for clients in the Oil and Offshore industry and want to show we meet the highest HSE standards we take part in the OCIMF OVMSA (Offshore Vessel management and Self-Assessment). This includes over 300 Key Performance Indicators and Best-Practice guidance aimed at improving Safety and Environmental standards and performance. Vessels working for clients in the Oil and Offshore industry have a complete OVIQ (Offshore Vessel Inspection Questionnaire). Satisfactory implementation of this OVIQ is verified yearly by external independent inspectors. Also, CMID compliance to the standards as set by the IMCA (International Marine Contractors Association) is ensured via our Integrated Management System.


KOTUG’s activities are managed through an application named TugVision. With TugVision we share real-time information between the vessels and worldwide offices making it possible to deliver reliable and efficient services.


Tugvision is developed by KOTUG, in partnership with Logic Vison
