Tugboat Services
In order to provide best services to ships, and promote the safety of berthing and deberthing operations, Amirabad Port has acquired the requisite equipment commensurate to port demands as mentioned in the following table. As decided by port pilots, each operation includes at least one tugboat, which starts tugging at the time the vessel passes the breakwater toward the port in coordination of the pilot with the tugboat master. According to port regulations, all vessels entering the port need to use a tugboat, upon the discretion of the pilot.
