Tug & Barge Operations
Managing complex tug and barge work scopes for global construction projects is a key service provided by MMA.
As the only Australian owned tug and barge owner operating on the North West Shelf, we have supported every oil and gas project on Australia’s west coast since 1989 as the primary marine contractor for all tug and barge operations.
We have earned our reputation for providing integrated marine spreads for installation, commissioning and operation scopes, with an integrated approach centering on flexible tug and barge spreads that deliver project and modular cargo in a safe, efficient and reliable manner.
We have performed multiple ocean and coastal project towage scopes, infield towage scopes and offshore hip up operations for construction projects around the world. Our vessels are fitted with high quality winches, furnished with ancillary towing equipment and can accommodate remote location scopes.
Our offshore personnel also have extensive experience lashing transportation cargo as well as facilitating the loading and unloading of cargo alongside and infield. Our Tow Masters are intimately familiar with offshore operations and our project teams confidently manage marine spreads that involved third party vessel owners.
