Largest tug to ever visit Vancouver makes a special visit...

In early March, Seabridge Marine treated local industry stakeholders to an onboard tour of the Terasea Falcon, the largest tug to ever visit Vancouver Harbour. The three-year-old tug -- a long-distance, multi-purpose off-shore support vessel -- was used to deliver new barges for Vancouver marine company. "We saw a unique opportunity to use the tug to bring the barges to Vancouver," said Geoff Porter, President, Seabridge Marine Contractors Ltd., noting that the vessel's typical work is with large tows, such as Floating Production Storage and Offloading vessels across long distances. The Terasea Falcon is one of four sister vessels that are part of a joint venture (POSH Terasea Pte ltd.) between Seabridge Marine Services and Ezion Holdings Limited, who, along with PACC Offshore Services Holdings (POSH), provide support to the offshore oil and gas industry worldwide.
