Mob and Demob of Oil service related vessels to and from the Caspian Sea.
Moving outsize items by barges and towing of floating units using own equipment to Caspian including Baku.
Voyage charter of tug / barge combinations for Caspian, River, Black Sea, Mediterranean and Baltic operations.
Further long terms business includes the towing of oil rig supply, geophysical, anchor handling vessels and semi-sub oil rigs between the Black and Baltic seas to and from the Caspian as part of the mobilisation and demobilisation of the units for the expanding oil exploration and development in the region.
We now have a fleet of 25 Tugs and 17 barges covering the requirements of our clients in these areas. The business had been widely spread over the past 10 years, however more recently the majority of operations are in, to or from the Caspian Sea due to Oil Industry demand. All tonnage is flexible and can be positioned elsewhere if our clients require it.
The company's focus is to further develop relationships with its major clients so as to offer then a tailored service suitable to their requirements and ensuring as free a flow of information and data as possible. In this way we are able to ensure our vessels are in the right place at the right time, costs due to unnecessary waiting are reduced and prices to the clients continue to be competitive and cost effective.
