Ocean-going ship assistance

OPERATED BY BUGSIER OFFSHORE

Our tugs have been in service under the German flag for over 100 years. Our versatile, modern fleet assists the big ships in 29 ports throughout Europe. All around the clock we provide assistance to ships as they arrive and depart. We assist with manoeuvring in the harbour basin and with mooring. Whether Schottel-ASD (azimuth stern drive), tractor-hybrid, sea-going tug, pusher boat etc. – as our tugs have different drive types, we can offer the right tug at the right place.


Offshore / DEEP SEA TOWAGE

OPERATED BY BUGSIER OFFSHORE

In the field of offshore and sea towage, we profit from our many years of experience. We can reliably move oil drilling platforms for you, tow your docks and even lifting platforms for offshore wind energy. 5 offshore tugs and 9 sea-going tugs are available for these responsible tasks. All sail under German flag with German-speaking crews.


Coastal towage

OPERATED BY BUGSIER OFFSHORE

We bring your ships safely from A to B. Many of our powerful tugs are equipped for coastal towing. BUGSIER, as part of the FAIRPLAY Group, is involved in the transport of goods over Europe’s entire coastline.


Ponton transport

OPERATED BY BUGSIER OFFSHORE

FAIRPLAY TOWAGE GROUP has stationed pusher boats in Polish ports to be able to move pontoons and other vessels. These pusher boats work regularly on various maritime building sites in Świnoujście and Szczecin. Due to their very low draught of only 1.20 metres, these 770 hp vessels can also work in very shallow water.


Coastal protection

OPERATED BY ARGE KÜSTENSCHUTZ

FAIRPLAY is a founding member of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Küstenschutz coastal protection group which was set up in September 2001 in Germany. Currently, the group provides the German government with three of the most modern emergency tugboats. Their task is to help ships in distress and to prevent damage to the environment. From September 2010 the BALTIC stationed at Rostock-Warnemünde and the FAIRPLAY-25 stationed in Sassnitz have operated in the Baltic Sea. Since 2011, the NORDIC has been providing coastal protection in the German Bight as an emergency tug stationed at sea.


Oil and pollution spill control

OPERATED BY ARGE KÜSTENSCHUTZ

As an operator of oil-fighting vessels, Bugsier offers security for the German coastline as it defends it from oil pollution hazards. For more than 20 years we have been managing the oil spill control vessels the MPOSS, the Knechtsand and the Westensee on behalf of the German government and the coastal German states. We also work with the Havariekommando, the German central command for maritime emergencies, to provide assistance with tugs in the event of oil spills. Regular joint exercises with the tugs of our fleet in harbour and at sea guarantee the highest technical know-how and a perfectly trained team of experts.
