Tugs play a key role in the efficient handling of cargo in ports. Their tasks are manifold: from ship handling and escort to salvage operations and berthing manoeuvres. Tugs need to be both powerful and manoeuvrable. These are two features that distinguish the SCHOTTEL RudderPropeller and make it the world’s leading propulsion unit for tugs. SCHOTTEL Automation Systems and Marine Services can be used to exploit the further potential of individual vessels or even an entire fleet.
