SVITZER ocean-going tugs in action. The ocean-going tugs tow large objects all over the world, typically FPSOs (fl oating production storage and off -loading), semisubmersible rigs and off shore barges. Ocean towage is a spot market and the crew often do not know when or where they are going next. An ocean-going tug can be at sea for approximately 45 days without refuelling and often the refuelling takes place at sea. The ocean-going tugs are manned to be fully operational at all times and carry stores suffi cient for four months. TOWAGE SVITZER
