INTEGRATED SYSTEMS FOR GREATER PRODUCTIVITY AND SAFETY
Towage is a specialised area of port operations under continual evolution. The dynamic and demanding nature of towage assets, and the skill base required to operate them, has produced challenges for the towage industry.
A number of incidents within the towage sector has driven the industry to demand a higher degree of training, qualification and ongoing review, than has been seen before. There is a growing industry led demand for qualification on propulsion type and this move is completely supported by Oropesa.
Oropesa has fully embraced this shift towards a greater degree of accountable operations, and continues to base the provision of towage services on the same principle tenets as it’s pilotage services.
Matching towage assets for the task is always a balance between the requirements for safe operations, and the need for economical outcomes for the port/terminal.
Oropesa draws on a depth of understanding and experience in this area to enable the consideration of all options to the provision of these services in both the platform selection, and the method of engagement.
Build, Buy, Lease, Operate, Man or Contract in.
There is no ‘one size fits all’, and a tailored design for each client and situation will enable the optimum outcome for the operation.
The intrinsic relationship between Pilotage and Towage is optimized when these two functions are considered from a unified perspective. The best outcome can be achieved when these complementary undertakings are approached, and delivered, from a single perspective, and with a single minded aim – the success of the client.
Oropesa is able to deliver this through its integrated approach to towage operations.
