Ocean Group is adding a new tug to its fleet in British Columbia. The Ocean Cypress is a 28-metre vessel built by Damen at the Damen SongCam shipyard in Haipong, Vietnam. She has the same technical specifications as the Ocean Granville and the Ocean Kitsilano. The vessel will be based mainly in North Vancouver for the next few months, but will also be able to support operations in other locations, including Delta Port and the Fraser River. Ocean Group has been offering towing services in the Vancouver area since 2020 and in 2021 acquired Samson Tugboat, which offers port towing services in the Fraser River. The Ocean Group fleet now consists of nine (9) tugs.
