    PTP enforced FAS decision on the appeal of Baltic Sea Tug Agency

    Primorsk Trade Port executed the warning issued by the Leningrad Administration of the Federal Antimonopoly Service of Russia as regards the matter brought before court by Baltic Sea Tug Agency LLC (BSTA), says press center of FAS.

    BSTA provides towing services to both Russian and foreign ship owners. In November 2017, the terminal operator rejected to provide berths on the pretext of no berths available, strong wind and high waves. 

    Since the tugs of BSTA were not allowed to the water area of the port, towing of the oil tanker owned by a large Greek holding was not performed.

    According to the Leningrad Administration of the Federal Antimonopoly Service of Russia, mooring of BSTA tugs was possible that day. According to data of North-Western Department for Hydrometeorology and Environment, weather conditions were normal. 

    The statement says that was not the only incident in relations between the port and BSTA.

    “Having stated that it was unjustly accused the stevedoring company addressed the dispatching service of the port with an order declaring that  unmotivated rejection of tugboats mooring, including tugboats of BSTA, is not admissible,” says the statement.
     
    Baltic Sea Tug Agency LLC owns and operates tugboats and industrial ships at Russia’s key ports in the Gulf of Finland. BSTA fleets consists of ice-class azimuth tugboats of up to 5,200 h.p. as well as small tugs and engineering ships to support underwater and hydraulic engineering, dredging and hydrographical operations. All vessels of the company are fitted with rescue equipment and can perform firefighting and oil spill response activities.
