Marin Tug&Pilotage and Sanmar keep the customers satisfied
Winners of marine industry work together to make their customers happier. Capt. Kazim Bakan of Marin Tug says "We can honestly say that in all the work we perform with Sanmar tugs, we are fully satisfied and, most importantly, so are our customers."
Marin Tug & Pilotage is one of the leading players in the country’s marine industry. The company concentrates on harbour towage, nationwide and open sea towage and salvage operations on international waters.
Exactly half of this operator’s 16 strong fleet of tugs have been built by Sanmar at either of its two custom built shipyards.
Marin Tug's more recent additions, comprising five vessels built by Sanmar in 2019 alone, all use Robert Allan Limited exclusive designs, including two of the 60 tonne bollard pull Bogacay class, probably Sanmar's most successful series of ASD configuration tugs. A third slightly more powerful 70 tonne BP unit will be delivered before the end of the year.
The most recent additions to the Marin Tug fleet are being used to fulfil the new port operation licences acquired by the company in Izmit and Nemrut Bay.
The new regulations encouraged the operators to own and operate more powerful tugs. Those operators with the more powerful ASD or tractor tugs had a greater chance of being awarded towage licences in the busier ports,” said Ruchan Civgin, Sanmar’s Commercial Director.
