Bahia Grande is a shipping company, with over 30 years’ experience in ship management.
Our aim is to provide safe and reliable marine services to our clients. In order to achieve it, we work jointly with them to understand their needs and find a tailor-made solution to suit their needs.
The company was established on September 1987, and its founder, Guillermo Jacob, was a pioneer in developing the fishery in Argentina through agreements with Japanese and Taiwanese squid jigging fleets from 1992 onwards. At present, we continue with this activity through the operation of jigging vessels.
In 2008, taking advantage of our experience in ship Management, we broadened our scope and began offering offshore plaform support and tanker operations.
The incorporation in 2008 of the anchor-handler BG Tiger (with a total of 3,500 hp) marked the beginning of our role as an offshore services supplier. In 2012 this vessel was replaced by AH Paraggi (with 8.000 HP) and more recently, by Normand Commander, the most modern and versatile multipurpose supply vessel in the area.
Parallel to this, in 2011 we began transporting fuels for YPF though a 2,000 ton bunkering tanker, UNEX III, which was replaced in 2016 by chemical tanker FILYOZ, with almost 7,000 tons deadweight. Lastly, in May 2019 we are incorporating a new tanker, BESIKTAS ZEALAND, of almost 17,000 tons, which will provide services for TRAFIGURA PTY.
