Our colleagues at Keppel Smit Towage, Saam Smit Towage and KOTUG SMIT Towage provide assistance to incoming and outgoing vessels in the world’s biggest ports. While towing a vessel like a 292-meter long bulk carrier with a gross tonnage of over 92,000 tonnes might look impressive, it’s all in a day’s work for our crews. Every day they carry out dozens of similar jobs in major ports all around the world. Naturally our crews have state-of-the-art tugboats at their disposal. As well as bulk carriers we assist vessels such as ro-ro ships, oil and chemical tankers, container ships and reefer vessels. Together with our joint venture partners we operate a fleet of more than 450 vessels and provide harbour towage services in over 90 ports in 35 countries.
Through Smit Lamnalco (50% Boskalis-owned) we provide an all-round package of services aimed at onshore and offshore terminals. The core activity is support during the berthing and unberthing of oil and gas tankers. Additional activities include:
- subsea inspection and maintenance
- coupling and uncoupling of terminal connections
- crew and cargo transportation
- operating bunker vessels
