Mexico

Our experience in the Mexican market dates back to 1997, with state-of-the-art tugs supplying towage services throughout the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific coast. Our operations were further expanded in 2003 to provide offshore services to Pemex, the Mexican state oil company.

Today, as SAAM Towage, we are one of the leading tug operators, with services at the ports of Lázaro Cárdenas (Pacific coast), Veracruz, Altamira, Tuxpan and Tampico (Gulf of Mexico), offshore operations at Dos Bocas and a fleet of 18 tugs. In addition, a new tug will be added in 2020 to serve the Port of Veracruz.

Our fleet has been continuously expanded and updated to meet market demands, boasting an aggregate bollard pull capacity of more than 880 tons.

The offshore services fleet serves the main Mexican oil company along with a variety of other customers, providing tanker assistance, static towage, coastal towage and platform movements.

Our vessels are modern azimuth tugs with between 70 and 90 tons of traction. They include firefighting and salvage technology to provide efficient, uninterrupted service.

Our team of mostly local employees has broad experience and a strong focus on customers and safety. All crew members and administrative personnel complete ongoing training to guarantee that best practices are implemented on a daily basis.

Our operations are certified under industry standards like ISPS (Safety), ISM (Health and Environment) and ISO 9001:2008 (Quality).
