Engage Marine is pleased to announce it has been awarded a contract by CSL Australia Pty Ltd (CSL) to support its transhipment operations and perform harbour towage services in the Port of Whyalla, in the Spencer Gulf, South Australia.
The contract, which is due to commence on the 7th September 2021, will involve the mobilisation of three additional tugs to Whyalla to join the Engage Challenger which is currently already operational.
The tugs will be utilised to safely move the Floating Offshore Transfer Barge (FOTB) and Self-Unloading Barges (SUBs), to allow the loading of iron ore onto ocean going vessels at the transhipment point.
Engage Marine CEO, Mark Malone, said “we are delighted to be awarded this contract and provided with the opportunity to continue to support CSL’s operations in Whyalla. This award is a direct reflection of the efforts of our operational team in Whyalla in delivering a level of service that differentiates us as the preferred supplier to CSL.”
