The development of the Rotortug is based on many years of practical and technical experience in the towage field. The principal advantage of this revolutionary Rotor®Tug is its remarkable maneuverability, provided by its three azimuth propulsion units. Each driven by a separate main engine – two forward, as on Z-propeller tractor tugs and one aft as an active skeg – the Rotor®Tug combines a massive bollard pull with a high degree of maneuverability and reliability in a compact design.
Principal advantage of the Rotortug: 3 fully azimuthing propellors
For many jobs, this means that less tugs are needed. The design of the Rotor®Tug shows that the power can be delivered by rotating the thrusters rather than the tug itself, which saves space and maneuvering time. A real advantage for a narrow lock or bridge passage and assisting in confined areas.
