Our tugs are at work for you


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

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.

Ocean-going ship assistance

Together with the FAIRPLAY fleet, we assist ships with our modern harbour tugs in the ports of Hamburg, Wedel, Stade-Bützfleth, Brunsbüttel, Cuxhaven, Bremerhaven, Bremen, Brake, Nordenham, Wilhelmshaven, Rostock and Wismar. Our service is available around the clock. Our fleet can be flexibly deployed in large and small harbours.

Oil and pollution spill control

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.


With our BUGSIER mooring service we moor you safely in harbour. For the Bremerhaven port area we are available around the clock, seven days a week. An experienced team of 30 dockers as well as eleven IVECO mooring trucks and Manitou telescopic cranes are at your disposal for the efficient handling of all orders. You too can rely on our customer-facing mobile phone service.


Safety along the German coast. We will be on the spot within a very short time to help ships in distress. Our fleet has acquired its many years of experience in numerous salvage operations worldwide.
