Tug & Barge Operations

At MMA Offshore we know tug and barge operations and have a wealth of experience supporting large scale installation, commissioning and operation scopes

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. In doing this, we have been the primary marine contractor for all tug and barge operations.

We have earnt a reputation for providing integrated marine spreads for installation, commissioning and operation scopes. Our integrated approach centres on flexible tug and barge spreads that deliver project and modular cargo in a safe, efficient and reliable manner. We also ensure our tugs can be dual purpose and provide infield support services including standby and hyperbaric support.

We have performed multiple ocean and coastal project towage scopes, infield towage scopes and offshore hip up operations. Our vessels are fitted with high quality winches, furnished with ancillary towing equipment and can accommodate remote location scopes. 

Our offshore personnel 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.
