Atlantic Towage and Marine came to the assistance of a large container ship, the Atlantic Companion which suffered engine failure south of the Fastnet Rock, on 13th January 2015.

The latest vessel to join the Atlantic Towage and Marine fleet is the Ocean Navigator, a highly versatile in-harbour tug, whose shallow draft and large wheelhouse makes her ideal as a survey vessel or dive support vessel. Atlantic Towage and Marine recently contracted Mooney Boats to supply and fit a new crane to the Ocean Navigator, and install a custom made hydraulic A Frame, new winch and quick release tow hook. Mooney Boats also made the transom removable to enable working over the stern, ie ploughing, seabed levelling and towing. On completing the engineering works, the Ocean Navigator received a new paint job from top to bottom.
