Québec-based Ocean signed a ten-year contract with the Port Authority of Jamaica for providing harbor towage services at the Kingston Harbour.

As explained, the company is deploying its equipment and personnel in the port area of Newport West, Kingston, to meet the growing demand for harbor towing services.

Three latest generation tug boats from the Ocean fleet will be in service and will officially start operations at the end of June.

“Thanks to this new contract, we export our harbour towing services internationally and pursue the implementation of our development plan in the Caribbean,” according to Ocean.

“Ocean has been growing and developing over the last few years. Today is much more than a contract for harbour towing services in the Caribbean. It’s a new page in our history with the launch of a new place of business in Jamaica,” Jacques Tanguay, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented.

Ocean emerged from Aqua-Marine which was founded in 1972. Through acquisitions, strategic development and diversification, the company has become one of the main suppliers of integrated marine services in Canada.
