During the International Tug Convention held in Bilbao 2002, an initial meeting was held to discuss a possible Joint Industry Project (JIP) on tugs that operate in exposed conditions. In the last year there has been further research into what needs to be addressed in the project and the participants have been assessing interest and raising the profile of the project. There has already been significant interest from a number of leading terminal operators. The first, more detailed, project proposal is due to be discussed in the coming months and interested parties will be informed in due course.
