International maritime service provider KOTUG celebrated the christening ceremony of one of the latest generation RotorTugs during their traditional Herring Party in Bremerhaven, Germany on June 13, 2013.

RT Ambition has a length of 32m, a width of 12m, 6.456 BHP and a bollard pull of 84 tons. RT Ambition is the 11th RotorTug, built at ASL Shipyard Singapore, of a series of 14 sister vessels. The sisters are built at Niigata Shipyards Japan and ASL Shipyard Singapore and are a part of KOTUG´s comprehensive fleet expanding and renewal program.

RT Ambition commenced operation in December 2012 assisting seagoing vessels in the port of Bremerhaven, working to the full satisfaction of the clients, vessel´s masters, pilots and tug´s crews.

Due to her three propulsion units, which independently can be turned 360° degrees, the RotorTug has a unique maneuverability, the manufacturer said. According to RT Ambition, the design of the RotorTug enables delivery power by rotating the thrusters rather than the tug itself, which saves space and maneuvering time. A real advantage for the narrow locks and bridge passage in the port of Bremerhaven. With the RT Ambition, KOTUG´s fleet in Bremerhaven nows consist of 9 RotorTugs.

The christening ceremony of RT Ambition was performed by sponsor Lady of RT Ambition Mrs. Claire Knegtel. She is the wife of Mr. Dorus Knegtel, KOTUG’s former COO. As from January 2013 Dorus retired and became KOTUG´s advisor to the board. During the ceremony Kotug highlighted the contribution of Dorus to KOTUG’s growth in the last 10 years.
