Floating Cranes and Ocean Tugs
Our company also owns and operates one of the few internationally registered ocean going tugs in Australia, which is fully equipped with weather fax, GMDSS radio systems and satellite, fax and email system, 20t deck winches, Hiab crane and 17’ recovery vessel. This tug is utilised for offshore, international and coastal towage of our floating crane barges as well as ocean rescues and salvage of ships. We also own a smaller state registered fire fighting and salvage tug, which has primarily been used for towage of large offshore fish cages, each containing over $2 million dollars worth of salmon from growing sites to the harvesting points, some 50nm by sea. We have now completed over 200 of these tows without incident.
We are a very competitive and lateral thinking business and we have very high standards of maintenance and safety. Our family business provides a personalised and professional service for all of your maritime needs.
