The tug BREMEN FIGHTER, from the Boluda Towage fleet, has passed all administrative procedures and inspections to officially operate, as of February 21, its maritime salvage activity under the German flag.


From now on, BREMEN FIGHTER is displaying the official German coast guard colours, with a commitment to protect maritime safety in the eastern Baltic Sea, under the command of German Federal Waterway Authorities.


BREMEN FIGHTER, an offshore tug, is the most powerful tug in the Boluda Towage fleet.


At an earlier stage, the German Federal Waterways and Shipping Administration (WSV) awarded ‘BREMEN FIGHTER’ for the public contract of salvage services in the Baltic Sea. This contract formally commenced on 21st February 2022.


Throughout the year 2021, the tug was already based in the port of Sassnitz, on the island of Rügen, and performed maritime salvage operations under command of the German Federal Waterway Authorities on an interim contract base.


The president of Boluda Maritime Corporation, Vicente Boluda Fos, expressed his satisfaction with this information "which highlights the strength of a world leading company in maritime services and the safety we offer in the sector, with a fleet of nearly 360 tugboats operating internationally".


Boris Szczesik, Managing Director Boluda Germany: “We are delighted to make our flagship BREMEN FIGHTER with her home port of Hamburg and her experienced crew available for this important contract with German Federal Waterway Authorities and the Central Command For Maritime Emergencies in the Baltic Sea”.
