Friday, November 16, 2012

On November 16 KOTUG´s new build RotorTug RT Ambition arrived in Bremerhaven. The tug left ASL Singapore Shipyard on September 22, 2012 and sailed under own power. RT Ambition measures 32 x 12 m, with a installed power totaling 6,456 BHP and a bollard pull of 84 tons.
Due to its three propulsion units, which independently can be turned 360 degrees, the Rotortug has an unique maneuverability.
RT Ambition is the 11th RotorTug of a series of 14 sister vessels. They are built at Niigata Shipyards Japan and ASL Shipyard Singapore respectively and are a part of KOTUG´s comprehensive fleet expanding and renewal program.
KOTUG is a fast growing towage company and expands its innovative services to ports and terminals in Europe, West-Africa and Australia. recently KOTUG started towage activities in the new German deep sea port Wilhelmshaven, next to Hamburg and Bremerhaven the third German Port where KOTUG is active. Due to this growth and the increased size of their client’s vessels, KOTUG needed this additional Rotortug. Just last week KOTUG implemented two new building tugboats (ZP Boxer and ZP Bulldog) into their fleet in the Port of Hamburg.
