Verreault Navigation offers efficient, safe and multipurpose tugboat services to ships sailing to its shipyard and the St. Lawrence River.
At the ports of Matane and Les Méchins, two tugboats (1000 hp and 2400 hp) are available for a wide range of services. Main services are described below.
We offer assistance for harbour operations like berthing, departures or berths shifting.
We conduct ship escort operations with one or more tugboats when ships, for instance, are navigating in difficult passages and under unusual weather.
Ice breaking and corridor opening
Our tugboats have ice-strengthened hulls for ice breaking and the opening of sea lanes.
Assistance to disabled vessels
We can tow ships in difficulty during navigation and in need of assistance.
