Based on the east coast of Scotland, Targe Towing provides Harbour and Terminal towage, and associated marine services, specialising in supporting vessel movements associated with the offshore wind industry and other complex towage projects.

Targe Towing Ltd was founded in 1991 by Tom Woolley, Josephine Woolley and Nick Dorman. The company was acquired by Forth Ports Ltd in 2021 and was subsequently merged with Forth Estuary Towage Ltd, keeping the Targe Towing brand.

As a company we believe achievement is derived from leadership, teamwork and pursuit of excellence, all of which are developed through inclusive and open dialogue with principals and customers, and by personal contact and open reporting with all members of the work force.
