Togo: Port of Lomé Gets Fourth Tugboat from Boluda Towage

(Togo First) - Boluda Towage, one of the global leaders in sea towing, delivered Togo’s Autonomous Port of Lomé its fourth tugboat last week. Edem Tengue, Togolese Minister of Maritime Economy, Fishing, and Coastal Protection, announced the news on Twitter.

The new boat is intended for the outfitting, docking, and rescue of commercial ships. It should boost the towing capabilities of the Lomé container terminal (LCT), particularly for mega-ships. Also, the boat should improve the operational capacities of the port and sustain Lomé’s competitiveness against the ports of Abidjan and Tema in West Africa, as well as the port of Lekki in Nigeria, whose activity has recently developed.

According to Minister Tengue, "The official inauguration ceremony for this new tugboat is scheduled for September 2023."

The arrival of the new tugboat was agreed upon last May between Antonio Bordils Montero, CEO of the multinational BOLUDA, and Edem Tengue, during a meeting.
