Singapore-based PSA Marine has acquired Peru’s Tramarsa Flota and its subsidiaries from Grupo Romero for an undisclosed amount.

PSA Marine managing director Peter Chew and Grupo Piurano de Inversiones CEO Marco Peschiera signed the agreement in Lima on 12 February.

Tramarsa Flota offers towage, pilotage, launch boat and offshore services to Peru’s ten major ports.

Its fleet of 45 vessels includes 17 tugs, 23 launches and five support vessels that are used for diving activities and other marine services.

Chew said: “We are delighted to welcome Tramarsa Flota to our PSA Marine global family. This strategic move will strengthen our international towage and pilotage network.

“United by the common business language of excellence in all that we do, the PSA Marine group will continue working alongside our key stakeholders to deliver exceptional service to our customers. This is an exciting milestone and I look forward to what we can deliver together as one company.”

Tramarsa Flota managing director Enrique Andres Tarazona Soria said: “My team and I are excited to be part of the PSA Marine global family. We are committed to deliver only the best and maintain a strong foothold in our maritime operations along the Peruvian coastline.

“I will continue to lead Tramarsa Flota and would like to thank the Maritime Authority, the National Port Authority, port community, staff, customers and key stakeholders for their continued support.”
