KOTUG International B.V. and Horizon Maritime Services have formed KOTUG Canada, a joint venture company which will offer terminal and harbor towage services across Canada.
As explained, the joint venture intends to establish “a strong presence” within the Canadian terminal and harbor towing market.
By combining their complementary skills, the duo intends to share joint experience, expertise and best practices in the towage market.
“KOTUG continues to expand internationally and looks forward to providing sustainable industry-leading equipment and services to our Canadian customers. We have selected Horizon Maritime as our partner based on our relationship with its leadership team and on its focus on people and safety. We look forward to working together,” Osman Munir, Chief Commercial Officer, KOTUG, said.
