KOTUG Asia Sdn. Bhd. has commenced towage activities with its Rotortugs in the port of Tanjung Pelapas (PTP) Malaysia, with effect from November 1, 2015, the operator and owner announced today.
 
KOTUG Asia said it started its operations with two 65 tons bollard pull Rotortugs, RT Claire and RT Stéphanie, in PTP delivering 24/7 operations supported by local Malaysian management and experienced crew. Additionally, the company said it is able to rapidly expand its fleet with more powerful tugboats.   
 
The Rotortug, pioneered by KOTUG, features three separate azimuth propulsion units to provide improved vessel safety, power and maneuverability, enabling the Rotortug to reduce turnaround time, fuel consumption and often results in fewer tugs needed per ship assistance. 
 
As a towage operator and tug owner, KOTUG Asia will be engaged in Malaysian harbor and terminal towage, coastal and deep sea towage, emergency response and salvage operations, assistance to offshore, ship to ship operation services and the provision of training in relation to the crew on maritime craft.
