  1. Power & Manoeuvrability

    The patented Rotor®Tug propulsion configuration consists of three diesel driven azimuthing thrusters of which two units are placed in the fore ship and one unit is placed in the aft ship. Thanks to this propulsion configuration the tug features 100% bollard pull over the bow, 100% bollard pull over the stern and 65% bollard pull sideways. As a result the vessel has an extremely high manoeuvrability.

  2. Safety

    During high speed escorting operations the Rotor®Tug immediately returns to a safer position when reducing throttle or in case of engine black-out.
    With the Rotor®Tug propulsion system the transfer between high speed escorting operations and low speed assistance operations can take place in a fully controlled manner.

  3. Redundancy

    The Rotor®Tug configuration with triple Z-drives and main engines ensures a great redundancy level. If one thruster or main engine fails you are capable to complete the assistance in a safe and controlled way.
    The Rotor®Tug is equipped with two winches, one on the fore - and aft deck. In case a towline or winch fails, the tug master just turns the tug and reconnects on the other winch.
