The principal advantage of this revolutionary tug is its remarkable manoeuvrability, provided by its three azimuth propulsion units, making it the safest way to tow in narrow locks, bridge passages and confined areas or even in adverse weather conditions. Due to the azimuth system, the bollard-pull of these tugs is maintained at an almost 100% level in any direction the tug is pulling. Due to the Rotor®tugs’ excellent manoeuvrability, fewer tugs per job are needed.
