@ Lappino, It depends not only on the size of the tugs,,also on the port regulations !! We going to load soon in Puerto Nuevo,Col. they have mandatory requirement of 3 tugs. The majority of the ships loading there are capesizer, around 180-220000 tons and such,,,but we also must use 3 tugs and are only max 38.000 tdw

Yes, Pieter, it depends on the size but, for instance, in Bakar near Rijeka in Croatia they also use only 3 tugs - but those tugs are actually smaller than the ones shown here, which are of "regular" Korean (and many of them are ex-Japanese) size. I have seen only a couple of tugs here in Korea that are visibly larger than the rest...

Vald, that depends on the size of the tugs, In Rotterdam they use only three.....
