KOTUG can boast over 100 years of experience in the maritime industry. In these years we have expanded our field of expertise from towage to other areas such as salvage and offshore. This extensive nautical and technical knowledge has now been consolidated in KOTUG’s Maritime Excellence Center (MEC). The MEC is the place where our track record becomes tangible and where we are able to perform our part as thought leader. Where we fulfil our promise of being an all-round and integrated knowhow service provider to the maritime industry.

Our mission is to support clients in creating safer, greener and more efficient operations. KOTUG’s Maritime Excellence Center addresses all elements of a shipping line and is therefore the place to go to for every aspect of ‘Tugnology’ - and more. From training programs to supervision of the newbuilding of vessels, from strategic advice to aiding in operation and everything in between.

The four disciplines – Tug Training, Nautical Consultancy, Technical Consultancy and Newbuilding – join forces and together create a professional synergy. Clients can tap into these services separately or as a powerful all-in-one package. Value is further added to this wealth of knowledge in the MEC by sharing it with clients. This truly broadens horizons and helps all industry players to develop, improve continuously and to stay ahead.
