Winching in more business

Kongsberg Maritime is to deliver a further nine heavy-duty Escort Series towing winches to Turkish tugboat builder Med Marine.  The order to equip nine azimuth stern drive (ASD) escort tugs follows a previous seven tug contract, bringing Kongsberg’s winch supply contract with Med Marine to a total of 16 shipsets.

“I want to thank Med Marine for their excellent cooperation over the past few months it has taken to negotiate these significant contracts,” said Arto Salo, Kongsberg Maritime’s Senior Sales Manager for Towing Winches. “I am very pleased that we were able to close such a large deal and I would like to extend my gratitude to the regional team in Turkey, who worked hard on this contract and were key to the final negotiations.”

Kongsberg Maritime’s Escort Series of towing winches are a popular choice for tug operators in terminals and harbours around the world.Kongsberg Maritime and Med Marine have a longstanding relationship, with many Med Marine-built tugs featuring Kongsberg technology and equipment. Kongsberg is one of the world’s leading suppliers of deck machinery, propulsion engineering and digital technology for tugs and workboats worldwide.

“We are pleased to collaborate with Kongsberg Maritime on these projects. We are confident that this partnership will greatly enhance the mutual interests of both parties in the development of a successful business relationship. Together with Kongsberg, we believe we are in an ideal position to meet the growing customer demand for Med Marine's cutting-edge tugs,” said Ertuğrul Çetin, Procurement & Technical Group Manager at Med Marine.

Kongsberg Maritime will exhibit at Seawork 2023 as part of the new Norwegian Maritime Exporters pavilion.
