Arctic Directory: Crowley adds Sesok to fleet of Alaska river tugs

Crowley Maritime Corp. said Aug. 25 that joining the fleet of Alaska river tugs this month was its newest triple-screw diesel powered tug, the Sesok.

Jointly designed by Crowley and Diversified Marine, the Sesok, which means “beluga whale” in the Native Inupiaq language, boasts 1,362 horsepower and is equipped to safely propel petroleum and freight barges in river systems throughout Alaska.

“Even in the midst of tough economic times, Crowley continues to invest in vessels that not only provide the safest service but also help protect Alaska’s natural resources,” said Craig Tornga, vice president of Crowley’s Alaska marine services. “Both the Sesok and the Nachik complement the company’s existing fleet of river tugs and will provide improved service to our customers and communities in Western Alaska.”
