It is with much excitement and pride that we announce our latest development. On 4 May 2020, MARSOL was acquired by KOTUG International B.V.
Headquartered in The Netherlands, KOTUG International is a leading Towage Services provider, with a fleet of 50+ tugs active across the globe. Their areas of expertise include Terminal Towage, Harbour Towage, Offshore Operations and Salvage Operations, which greatly expands and complements the established range of MARSOL services.
Expect our high-quality service excellence to continue as always, now with an even stronger presence for clients worldwide on short and long term contracts. Ard-Jan Kooren, CEO KOTUG International says that “Although we find ourselves in exceptionally challenging times, KOTUG is committed to continue to strengthen and expand her worldwide activities. The integration of MARSOL services will allow us to enter the Middle East market and add substantial value to our broad portfolio of services to our global customers. I would like to thank Mike Young, founder and owner of MARSOL, who has established a reputable company with high-quality services to their clients, with a great team of skilled people.”
KOTUG’s long-standing knowledge is consolidated in the Maritime Excellence Center which provides training and consultancy, which further strengthens MARSOL’s mission to build and maintain sustainable offshore terminals and teams through on-site execution and consultancy.
Strongly aligned with our values, KOTUG is firmly committed to the highest industry standards of health, safety, environment, quality and security and we couldn’t be prouder to be a part of this esteemed group of companies.
In light of this new alliance, we are proud to share with you our updated logo (above) that marks a new era for our company. You can expect to see this new logo pave the way for all future endeavours, including the VT Minerals project we have just undertaken.
