ART (ADVANCED ROTORTUG®) SERIES

The ART (Advanced Rotortug®) designation applies to tugs featuring the unique triple drive configuration designed by Robert Allan Ltd. under the exclusive designer agreement with Rotortug® (KST) B.V., signed in 2013. Offering enhanced omni-directional manoeuvrability and control, with a redundant propulsion machinery configuration, the ART series offers enhanced performance for ship-handling, terminal support and escort towing. The ART series is poised to take the Rotortug® concept to the next level of development: as a truly viable solution for ship-handling in today’s ever busier and more congested ports, and for escort towing applications where high performance and reliability are paramount.
