This new tug allows us to have better service provision in terms of entry and exit of operations to give greater security in maneuvers and greater peace of mind to port operators. The official also highlighted that this means an “impressive value addition” and indicates that companies “are beginning to understand the direction in which the port of Mar del Plata is going productive development, investment promotion, security legal advice to companies so that they see Mar del Plata as a hub for regional development”.

In turn, it was Sergio Di Napoli (president of Remolcadores Mar del Plata S.A.) who addressed himself with a few brief words “… thanking everyone present for their presence on this pleasant day and especially, to whoever was the founder of the company, my father, whom many here knew. What he does is only maintain or try to improve what he has started… “.
