terminal towage

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.


Oil & Gas industry


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. 


In the Bahamas operations are lead by Kotug Seabulk Maritime LL. She is deploying four tugboats and a bunker barge to execute all Terminal Towage Operations, including Bunker Barge Assistance. The tug fleet, consists of two Rotortugs®, the RT Blackbeard and RT Raptor and two Stern Drives, SD Calypso and SD Junkanoo.

KOTUG also provides towage services for clients in the Mining industry, for example iron ore terminals in Australia and coal terminals in Africa. 





Safe and efficient Terminal Operations


KOTUG understands the importance of mitigating all risks associated with terminal operations. A key element to ensuring safe operations is being experienced operating in challenging environmental conditions and 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.
