KOTUG provides terminal towage assistance at port facilities as well as floating facilities such as FSO, FPSO, FLNG, FSRU, and SPM Terminals. Our services include escorting, berthing and safety cover, including firefighting and oil pollution control.
We have vast experience with securely berthing and mooring of LNG carriers, support during cargo loading, port security services, pilot transfer and standby services.
We serve several clients in the Oil & Gas industry with specialised towage services such as FLNG and offshore assistance, for which we employ purpose-built ISVs (Infield Support Vessel) and Rotortugs.
KOTUG also provides towage services for clients in the Mining industry, for exmple iron ore terminals in Australia and coal terminals in Africa.
KOTUG understands the importance of mitigating all risks associated with terminal operations. A key element to ensuring safe operations is having a well-trained and prepared crew.
Therefore, we have developed training programs which are based on a thorough understanding of tug and terminal behaviour, as well as years of field-practice.
These programs ensure that pilots, masters and crews are fully prepared to work together to meet project-specific safety, environmental, operational and emergency response requirements.
