Groupe Ocean in Jamaica

Groupe Ocean is augmenting its Kingston, Jamaica harbour tug operation with the addition of Ocean Tallawah which is currently en route from Capetown, South Africa.

Another Damen tug, this one was built in 2015 by Damen's Song Thu yard in Da Nang, and measures 268 gt. It has apparently been operating in South Africa for Damen's own rental fleet first as Njouri until 2016 and then Djouri until recently.

Ocean's Kingston fleet has been operating with two tugs, Ocean Kingston Pride and Ocean Stevns since Ocean Taiga returned to Canada this year to work in Milne Inlet. Ocean Stevns was re-registered in Canada May 2, but is still listed as bareboat chartered under Jamaica flag, so there is still the possibility that it will be heading back to Canada where its ice capability will be better utilized.
