Optimizing port maintenance

Involve us in the design phase of your port development and we can optimize port maintenance by including future requirements.

Ensuring ships arrive and depart on time

We provide the vital link between ship and berth through the Smit Lamnalco, Keppel Smit Towage, KOTUG SMIT Towage and Saam Smit Towage joint ventures.

Safe navigation and emergency response

Wrecks must be removed when they pose a threat to safe navigation or obstruct access. Ports must have a plan for preventing, containing or cleaning up oil spills. SMIT’s highly trained and experienced salvage teams are equipped to respond immediately to emergencies anywhere in the world 24/7, delivering cost-effective compliance with requirements such as OPA ’90.
