The first tugboat sets sail.

TNG performed sea-testings on board of “PEMEX TARAHUMARA” one of the first tugboats  builts by the shipyard for the oil company. The most important tests to be performed in detail on the boat and in presence of representatives from SEMAR and PEMEX, are those relative to the propulsion system, maneuvering, speed , fixed point drive and Fire Fighting system, among many others.

TNG moves forward with the construction of 4 tugboats for PEMEX.

After the reactivation of the Maritime Construction in Talleres Navales del Golfo ,  in April 2014, the shipyard performed a floating ceremony for the most advanced tugboat of the 4 being under construction as part of Pemex’s Minor fleet renovation. The ceremony was held on February 27th , 2015 and on may 29th the shipyard honored one more milestone after placing one tugboat more on its docks, for the remaining of its construction process.
