Engage Marine and Smit Lamnalco announce investments in the Australian harbour towage joint venture
Engage Marine Pty Ltd (Engage Marine) and Smit Lamnalco announce their investments in the Australian harbour towage joint venture, Engage Towage Pty Ltd (Engage Towage).
Engage Towage is a sustainable and competitive towage service provider within the Australian marine industry, providing clients with an alternative solution to existing operators. Current Engage Towage operations cover Port Jackson and the Port of Geelong utilising five modern azimuth-drive tugs.
The joint venture combines Smit Lamnalco’s expertise, competence, training of crew, dedication, and (global) client network with the commercial flexibility, contemporary vision and nimble operations associated with Engage Marine.
The scope of the joint venture is specific to providing increased choice in the Australian harbour towage market, and therefore the existing businesses of Smit Lamnalco and Engage Marine (including Westug) will continue to operate independently from this newly formed JV.
