Editorial programme

International Tug & OSV, incorporating Salvage News (IT&O) is dedicated to tug, OSV and salvage matters, with regular features forming the core of each issue. These are backed up by special features, many of which focus on latest developments in the industry. IT&O is published six times a year to a worldwide audience of over 10,000 influential and senior professionals.

Regular features

A substantial International News section covers not only topical incidents and developments, but reviews the important events of recent months. This is where important towage stories are described, company takeovers considered and new appointments detailed.

Every issue contains a batch of the latest New Orders & Contracts, to keep readers up-to-date with who is doing what, and where. Many of these vessels are subsequently described in detail by contributing editor Andy Smith, who has been with the publication continuously since its launch, in Tug & OSV Deliveries. This section of the magazine provides a detailed technical description of each vessel, with photographs.

Features include At The Helm - an in-depth interview with a key figure in the industry, covering their personal and professional life, and opinions about current trends and future developments in their particular corner of the marine industry. Other leading industry figures are interviewed in our new Operator Profiles, which provide an insider's view of companies at the forefront of the tug, salvage and offshore business.

Another regular feature is Bridge Technology, which considers new wheelhouse developments, in particular the electronics used on both tugs and OSVs, while Products & Services rounds up all that is new to the market. Many editions include Propulsion, Engine Room and Deck Machinery sections, while most issues have a feature giving attention to a particular region of the world, such as North America, Europe, Asia or the Middle East.

Special features

Specialist areas such as Digital Innovation, Offshore Support Operations and Ice Class are also covered, while the important environmental issues that are reshaping the tug, salvage and OSV world are considered in depth. Safety & Training is another key area, particularly with reference to the new vessels being developed and the hi-tech equipment that all vessels now have on board.

Legal and classification issues and their implications for the industry are given careful consideration, with expert commentary on maritime law appearing in every issue. The latest information on conferences and exhibitions is also part of the regular content, as are papers by experts on topics relevant to the industry.
