Samson Quantum-12 Equips the BRAtt

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Samson, provider of performance cordage announced that the prototype BRAtt, is equipped with Quantum-12, one of Samson’s most popular towing lines. BRAtt, which is the acronym for Burchett Robert Allen training tug, is scheduled to debut at the International Tug and Salvage Convention and Exhibition in Vancouver, B.C. this month.

The result of collaboration between Ron Burchett and Robert Allen Ltd, the BRAtt answers the global need for cost-effective azmuthing-stern-drive training vessels for today’s commercial- and naval-ship masters. The BRAtt is designed exclusively by Robert Allan Ltd., Naval Architects of Vancouver B.C., and will be built by Adrenalin Marine Ltd. of Delta, B.C., which has been selected as the licensed builder for all BRAtts in North America. The 26 ft long, 450 horsepower BRAtt features most of the same technology and operating systems as similar full-sized Z-drive tugs, so operators can be trained to handle the more expensive and larger tugs that have become common in the world’s major ports without putting those major assets at risk. Although primarily intended as a training vessel, the BRAtt is also designed to be an affordable alternative to full-sized tugs for harbor duties such as boom deployment, yarding, and line-handling, etc.
