SAAM Towage, a part of the Chilean towage, port and logistics services provider SAAM, has been contracted to provide services for the Energía del Pacífico (EDP) project at the Port of Acajutla in El Salvador. 

The long-term agreement with EDP calls for allocating three tugs, two of which are new, to power plant operations, SAAM Towage said in its statement.

“The 378 MW plant will be powered by liquefied natural gas and includes a floating storage and regasification platform,” SAAM Towage, managing director Felipe Rioja noted.

The initiative will supply 30 percent of El Salvador’s energy demand, helping to diversify the country’s energy matrix and reduce environmental impact.

The project will begin to inject energy into the grid by the end of 2021, but SAAM Towage tugs will begin to operate in May 2021.

Providing further details, Rioja said the vessels are azimuth tugs, 32 meters in length, specially designed to meet the requirements of offshore operations and escort vessels.
