KOTUG nowadays operate three hybrid Rotortugs. RT Adriaan and RT Evolution are operating in the Port of Rotterdam and RT Emotion commenced her towage activities in the German port of Bremerhaven recently. RT Evolution and RT Emotion, both 32- metre hybrid next-generation ART80-32 Rotortugs® are new Damen-built tugs and designed by an alliance of Rotortug B.V. in the Netherlands and Robert Allan Ltd in Canada.

Seen as a true advancement of hybrid technology and performance, the propulsion configuration draws on the proven design of KOTUG’s RT Adriaan – world’s first hybrid Rotortug® built under class. The green results of the E-KOTUG series are 50% less harmful emissions, significant noise reduction, cleaner combustion and substantial maintenance savings thanks to improved fuel economy. The Rotortug’s hybrid capacity is generated by three electric motors, complemented by a battery pack and managed by an intelligent XeroPoint Hybrid Propulsion System.
