Seabulk Towing’s Advanced Rotortug®
Seabulk Towing’s Advanced Rotortug® (“ART”) towing vessels, designed by Robert Allan Ltd., feature the unique triple Z-drive configuration, originally conceived and developed by KOTUG International BVof the Netherlands. Offering exceptional omni-directional maneuverability and control, with a redundant propulsion machinery configuration, the ARTseries offers enhanced performance for ship-handling, terminal support and vessel escort services.
The Revolutionary Ship Docking Module (SDM™)
Developed with assistance from the Elliott Bay Design Group, Seabulk Towing’s Ship Docking Modules (“SDMs”) are powered by twin Z-drives mounted fore and aft and together generating 4,200 horsepower. The unique design of this 90-foot tug can produce 100% of its ABS-certified bollard pull of 120,000 lbs. in any direction. Specifically built for ship-assist work in confined areas, the SDM provides powerful performance and ability to maneuver ultra-large commercial ships within narrow channels and environmentally sensitive waterways.
