Oy Yxpila Hinaus-Bogsering Ab is a company engaged in harbor towage and icebreaking services. We are based in the Port of Kokkola, and have been offering services to our customers for over 30 years. The port has grown and developed during the recent years, and has risen to become the 3rd largest general port in Finland. This has set a need for some adaptation from our part as well, and we have thus developed the company and invested in some modern and highly maneuverable equipment.
The number of employees has also increased bringing the total number of crew to 17 persons. Our operations are concentrated to the Port of Kokkola, but we currently operate all around the Bay of Bothnia. Our fleet consists of five vessels, of which 2 are conventional, and 3 are ASD-type tugs. Four of the vessels are certified for winter navigation and in addition to towing our tugs are also engaged in icebreaking duties during the winter months.
We are also capable of transporting supplies or spare parts to ships at sea. Our goal is to produce safe and high quality services on every aspect; therefore we maintain and take care of our equipment and our crew train regularly. Our tugs are available on short notice, 24 hours a day, all year around. Contact us through your shipping agent, or directly via the company duty number.
