Towage

We offer 24 hours a day non-stop service in harbour towage with the call sign “Hong Kong Tugs”. Operating within Hong Kong Waters, harbour towage covers the area from Tap Shek Kok to Tolo Harbour, the whole Victoria Harbour, Kwai Chung-Tsing Yi Container Terminals and Lamma Island.

 

Our towage services cover all types and sizes of vessels (including passenger ships, tankers, container ships, car carriers and bulk carriers) calling at Hong Kong.  Our tugs have horsepower up to 5,000 BHP and 74.5 Tons Bollard Pull.  All of them have been designed as “reverse tractor” type with twin 360 degree azimuthing propulsion units under the control of a single joystick, which allows the maximum manoeuvrability and efficiency.

 

HKST was an all-time participant in the construction of all the cross-harbour tunnels in Hong Kong. We have also been regularly employed to engage ocean tows, including oil rig in the Asia Pacific Region, on both long-and short-term charters.
