Rotterdam-based provider of towage and associated marine services Smit Lamnalco has won an exclusive licence by Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC) to supply towage services in the Port of Gladstone.

The licence will commence on January 1, 2019 for a five-year term, with an option to extend for a further three years to December 31, 2026. The company has been providing harbour towage services at the Port of Gladstone since 2011.

“Smit Lamnalco is proud to have again been selected to provide towage services in this unique environment. We are looking forward to continuing our strong partnership with GPC, our port stakeholders and the local Gladstone community,” said Smit Lamnalco Commercial Director Frederik Rutgers.

The Port of Gladstone is one of Queensland’s largest multi-commodity ports, handling coal, bauxite, alumina, aluminium, cement and liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargoes.

Under the contract, eleven tugs, specifically designed to meet the unique operational characteristics of the port, will be deployed to service both harbour and LNG customers.
