The joint venture looks forward to developing a strong presence within the Canadian terminal and harbour towing market. KOTUG is renowned for establishing solid, long-term business relationships with leading clients in industries such as Oil & Gas, Mining, Renewables, Offshore, and Port Authorities for high demand operations. Horizon Maritime’s partnership with Heiltsuk First Nation, Heiltsuk Horizon was awarded a Government of Canada contract to provide marine services to enhance marine safety in Heiltsuk territory earlier this year. Heiltsuk Horizon will provide tug and barge services for the reconstruction of 28 navigational aids on British Columbia’s Central Coast, with support from the Shearwater Marine Group.
