QUÉBEC, June 12 2018 — Ocean is proud to announce the signing of a 10-year contract with
the Port of Kingston, Jamaica, for harbour towage services. Thanks to this new contract, Ocean
exports its harbour towing services internationally and pursues the implementation of its
development plan in the Caribbean.
State-of-the-art equipment and personnel will be deployed in the port area of Newport West,
Kingston, to meet the growing demand for harbour towing services. Three latest generation
tugboats from the Ocean fleet will be in service and will officially start operations at the end of
