SAAM SMIT acquires new escort tugs

529 SSTGrizzly

SAAM SMIT Towage Canada (SST Canada) has purchased two new world-class escort tugs, the SST Orca and SST Grizzly, both scheduled to arrive in Vancouver by mid-November. The tugs will measure 32 metres long and with 84 tonnes of static bollard pull, each tug will have the ability to safely produce steering forces of up to 82 tonnes and braking forces of up to 130 tonnes. Capt. Mark Bingham, Vice President, Operations of SST Canada says, “The addition of these two tugs expands our fleet to 25 vessels and brings our total investment to nearly $100 million since 2014.”  The RAstar 3200 tugs are designed by Robert Allan Ltd. and will serve the south coast of BC and will further expand SST Canada’s fleet to provide safe and efficient services in all BC locations.
