In recognition of Crowley Maritime Corporation's safe harbor ship assist and tanker escort operations on the west coast, Tesoro Maritime Company recently honored Crowley's harbor services team with safe work awards - one for each of the past four years - during a ceremony in Crowley's Seattle office. Crowley's Andrew Gauthier, port captain; Scott Hoggarth, general manager of harbor ship assist and tanker escort services; and tug crewmembers Abe Gueller, Tom File and Chuck Klausmeier were present to accept the awards from Captain Tim Plummer, vice president of Tesoro Maritime.

"It means a lot to all of us at Crowley - those at sea and ashore - to receive this recognition from Tesoro for our safe operations through the years. Our crews and shoreside employees ensure safe vessel operations through extensive training and environmentally sound practices," said Hoggarth. "To be recognized by a significant petroleum transportation company, and valued Crowley customer, is very rewarding."
 
Crowley has a long history of providing harbor ship assist and escort services to Tesoro tankers transiting U.S. West Coast ports and has been Tesoro's primary tug provider since 2007. That year, the Crowley-operated tug Vigilant, stationed in Cook Inlet, Alaska,  was chartered to Tesoro to provide ship assist and escort services for Tesoro-operated tankers moving in and out of the Tesoro Refinery dock in Nikiski, Alaska. Through the partnership with Tesoro, the Vigilant also provides assists for ships and barges carrying Tesoro product and for other third party entities needing an extra measure of safety and security in the heavy ice conditions that plague Cook Inlet during winter.
 
"Our relationship with Crowley is extensive and important to Tesoro," said Plummer. "It's a pleasure to see firsthand and also recognize the success of Crowley's focus on safety and the environment."
 
Tesoro has similarly honored the crewmembers of Crowley's tug Vigilant with awards for each year that passes with zero spills or incidents. These awards, which have been given every year of the charter, recognize Crowley's continued commitment to total customer satisfaction and the safety of people, property and theenvironment.
