The Managing Director of SAAM Towage, Hernán Gómez, celebrated the launch of operations in Peru, which will continue to strengthen the company’s position in the Americas.

“We are taking the first steps at the Port of Callao, which lets us provide better coverage on the southern Pacific coast. We are interested in this market and foresee leveraging our broad network in the region. Our strategy is to preserve our leadership position and play an important role in the industry’s consolidation process,” the executive commented.

SAAM Towage already relocated one tug (RAM Valkyria) to the Port of Callao and is in the process of moving a second unit (RAM Albatros). Both will assist ships with berthing and deberthing in the harbour. In addition, we have already opened offices in the city to meet the needs of this competitive market and have hired highly specialized personnel.

The company has more than 170 tugs at 84 ports in the Americas and completes over 100,000 maneuvers for around 37,000 vessels per year, thus positioning it as one of the continent’s leading providers of towage services.

These services include berthing and deberthing services for ships; assistance, salvage and towage for barges and civil construction projects; specialized services for ships at off-shore terminals and anchoring oil and gas platforms.
