KSK Küstendienst is an experienced tugboat company
based in Holzdorf near the Kiel Canal.
We are an experienced tugboat company based in Holzdorf near the Kiel Canal. We offer a wide range of towing and bowsing services along the canal as far as Brunsbüttel. Our aim is to provide our customers with a professional and reliable service of the highest standard.
The company KSK Küstendienst GMBH &CO.KG was originally founded in 2010 as GBR and has experienced steady growth since then. We started with the acquisition of our first tugboat, the “Flemhude” from Denmark, which we have gradually modernised and adapted to our technical standards. We are mainly active as a service provider for hydraulic engineering companies and are often contracted to tow their equipment and provide support at construction sites.
We are also booked by shipyards, authorities and other service providers for towing and bowsing work. We carry out sea towing, transport operations and assistance along the Kiel Canal.
In 2013, we acquired our second tugboat, the “VS NOK 1”, which we also converted and modernised. In 2014, we added the “Schwartenbek” and rented parts of the port area in Rendsburg-Büdelsdorf that was no longer in use. We converted it into a tugboat harbour and made it into a base in the middle of the NOK. Our customers can handle goods and equipment here.
Our commitment and expertise in towing and bowsing have made us well-known in the region. The traffic control for the NOK has become aware of us and asks us for support in case of accidents or special events along the canal.
In 2017, we transformed into a GmbH & Co.KG and Jurek Klement joined the management. We are proud of our team of experienced captains and crew members who excel in their work and provide a first-class service to our customers.
KSK Küstendienst is a young and reliable company that focuses on customer satisfaction as its top priority. We offer very good pricing based on our efficient and economical way of working. We are flexible in the implementation of orders and always ready to be at our customers’ disposal. Our trained staff is available around the clock, 365 days a year.
We are aware of our responsibility for the environment and strive to find solutions that conserve resources. We have a solution-oriented attitude and strive to implement the best for our customers. So if you are looking for a reliable and responsible service provider who puts your needs first, then you have come to the right place.
