Bahía Grande is a shipowner company with 34 years of experience in ship management.

Our Mission is to be a leading ship management company, providing our clients with logistics solutions with the highest standards of safety, reliability and efficiency. To do this, we work together with our clients, in a framework of trust and flexibility to seek the best solutions to their needs.

Bahía Grande was established in 1987 and its founder, Guillermo Jacob, was a pioneer in the development of the squid business in Argentina, and contributed to its expansion through agreements with the fleets of the former USSR in the 1980s, and with the Japanese and Taiwanese jigger fleets in the 1990s. This activity still continues with the operation of own or third-party jigger vessels.

Starting in 2008, capitalizing on its experience in ship management, the company began a diversification process, towards off-shore platform support services and fuel transportation.

Initially with the addition of the BG Tiger, a 3,500 HP AHTS Tug Vessel, in 2008, the company began as an offshore service provider. In 2012, a new AHTS tug was added, the 8,000 HP AH Paraggi. In 2018 the 10,657 HP Normand Commander was incorporated, the most modern multipurpose vessel in the country, which provides services to the UTE ENAP / YPF and in 2019 the 10,657 HP tugboat BG Warrior was added, the first vessel equipped with a system. dynamic positioning system (DP2) under the Argentine flag, which has already provided services, among other clients, to ENAP, YPF, and Total Austral.

On the other hand, in 2011 the service of provision and maritime and river transportation of fuels began for YPF SA, through UNEX III, a 2300 m3 capacity tanker and from 2016 the FILYOZ tanker was added, of 6,300 m3. Later in 2019 the 20,000 m3 BESIKTAS ZEALAND tanker was incorporated, which provides service to TRAFIGURA PTY and in 2020 the 19,600 m3 capacity tanker Ayane, which provides services to CAMMESA.

Vessel Management

Providing services of excellence to our clients is supported by 3 basic pillars, supported by more than 30 years of experience:

We operate under management manuals that follow the best industry practices (OCIMF, OVID, IMCA) in terms of operational safety and efficiency. These procedures are continuously reviewed and updated based on the experience acquired and the recommendations of our clients; and its compliance is permanently audited by the company and by third parties.

Our crews are the heart of the company, since they are the ones who effectively operate the vessels under the established procedures and provide the services. Therefore, we take special care in the selection (taking into account the desired experience and required qualification), the periodic evaluation and the training of our most precious human resource.

Ground support
Support to ships is essential for logistics and maintenance issues, but also for safety issues and improvements in management. Therefore, in addition to maintaining fluid communication, we try to be as present as possible during port entrances and we hold regular meetings that promote a fluid ship-shore relationship.

Tanker vessels

Since 2011, we have provided sea and river fuel transportation services.
We currently operate two tankers, the BT AYANE (19,600 m3) and the BT BESIKTAS ZEALAND (20,000 m3).

Offshore Support vessels

With two support vessels for offshore operations, we provide services in the South Atlantic to the main oil companies with state-of-the-art vessels adapted to harsh weather conditions:

The Normand Commander, the most advanced vessel operating in Argentina, is a multipurpose vessel. (MPSV) with dynamic positioning (DP2) that has an underwater robot (ROV) with the capacity to operate up to 3,000 meters, fire fighting equipment (FiFi1) and spill control, a 100 tons self-compensating crane, helipad, and equipment air and saturation diving up to 12 people and up to 200 m deep.

The BG Warrior is an AHTS tug with dynamic positioning (DP2) and 10,657 HP of power, and a 136 tons (bollard pull) pulling capacity. Likewise, it has fire fighting equipment (FiFi1), aft crane (A-Frame) for 50 tons and equipment for spill control.

Throughout these years we have carried out a variety of tasks such as support for oil platforms, survey with divers (shore approach), bathymetric and geophysical studies, as well as towing and salvage services for a wide variety of clients such as ENAP, Boskallis Offshore BV, SMIT International, FUGRO Oceansismica, and Total Austral SA.

Fishing Vessels

Operating continuously since 1992, we were pioneers in the squid fishing business.

Today we operate one of the best jigger vessels in the Argentine fleet, the CHOKYU MARU 18, whose production is processed on board or on land and shipped from Argentine ports to markets around the world.

Crewing & fleet support

Our goal is to provide reliable, efficient and competitive maritime and crew services for foreign shipowners who must carry out projects in our country.

Given our extensive experience in managing ships of different types in our country, we assist and support several clients around the world locally more as a partner than an agent. We work together with them in the search for creative solutions in logistics and operation that meet their needs in the safest and most economical way possible. Our clients for this type of services include ENAP YPF and SIEM.
