The harbour tug SVITZER MENJA. Harbour towage operations in Denmark are part of the Scandinavian Region and managed from Gothenburg in Sweden. Most of the ports in Denmark are not big enough for dedicated deployment of tugs and SVITZER tugs therefore rotate between ports as and when required. Besides undertaking harbour towage some of the tugs tow large objects over longer distances. This work includes towing ship sections some 320 nautical miles from shipyards in the Baltic to the Odense Steel Shipyard in Denmark for assembly. During the summer one or two tugs are stationed at a terminal in the most northern part of Norway, Svalbard. SVITZER terminal tugs berthing a LNG tanker at the ELNG Terminal in Idku, Egypt. The four 65 tonnes Bollard Pull ASD tugs routinely assist such tankers with berthing and unberthing at the Mediterranean facing terminal. The focus is constantly on safety and precision in order to maintain the tankers’ voyage schedules without delay. In addition to towage, SVITZER also provides pilotage as well as mooring and line handling services at the terminal.
