Rotortug said that Elisabeth Ltd. has placed a new building order with Damen Shipyards for the construction of two Hybrid Advanced Rotortugs, ART 80-32 of 80 tons bollard pull.  imultaneously Elisabeth Ltd ordered two ART 80-32, with Fifi 1, at Cheoy Lee Shipyards Ltd.   They  will be the first series of Rotortugs to be built at Damen Shipyards and Cheoy Lee Shipyards Ltd and will be added to the Kotug fleet.
This ART 80-32 is the  third Rotortug design originating from  the co-operation between Rotortug and Robert Allan Ltd and the follow up on the first Hybrid Rotortug ever, the RT Adriaan, refitted by Aspin Kemp Associates Ltd  under supervision of the new building department of Kotug.
Today an agreement was signed between Damen,  Robert Allan Ltd  and Rotortug which enables Damen to build ART 80-32 Rotortugs for third parties. A separate signing ceremony with Cheoy Lee will be organized soon.  This agreement between parties announces the beginning of an new era for the Rotortug propulsion configuration. It is now possible to buy a Rotortug, designed by Robert Allan Ltd, built by Damen or  Cheoy Lee.
Damen and Cheoy Lee are planning to integrate the ART 80-32 into their harbor/terminal tugs portfolio. This will give them the opportunity to offer on tenders requesting Rotor®tugs for their performance, redundancy, superior safety and unique maneuverability.
