MN 100: ContainerTug B.V.

August 28, 2015

The Company:
ContainerTug B.V. is a specialized Dutch naval design engineering and construction company with a strong focus on developing workboats and the evaluation and calculation of concepts and structures. The firm’s pragmatic approach revolves around ‘Finding the optimal solution for the customer, while staying at the forefront of innovation.’ 

The Case:
ContainerTug has devised multiple innovative workboat designs which can be transported as standard 20’and 40’ containers. These include the 20 foot tug/workboat CT 600S, the 40 foot cargo support boat CB 200D and the 40 foot cargo support pontoon CB 1200P. More innovative containerized models will come out Q3/Q4 2015. The containerTug 600 is not tied to just one deployment area. Its container size dimensions and integrated corner fittings make it transportable in an identical way as for a normal 20 foot container: by road, by train or by ship. This provides ideal commercial scope. The ContainerTug 600 is fitted with a Volvo Penta commonrail D5 [121 HP] or D7 [177 HP] engine connected to a 28 inch fixed pitch propeller. Hydraulically steered, the double rudder system with large blade area provides maneuverability under all conditions.
