Urutug was created with the purpose of providing tug services in Uruguayan ports.

Urutug flagged its first tug, “Punta Gorda ” in December 2011. In July 2012 the “Punta Brava” tug arrived, and a little over than a year later, on October 4, 2013, the “Punta Sayago ” tug arrived, thus evidencing a sustained growth of the port logistic development. The three tugs are equipped with the best available technology in the country for tug and assistance services.
