RT Adriaan Hybrid Retrofit

In June 2011, the retrofit of Kotug’s RT Adriaan with AKA’s marine hybrid technology was announced. RT Adriaan will be Europe’s first hybrid tugboat and the first hybrid tugboat to be under CLASS with Lloyd’s Register. The rotor tug design is unique to Kotug as it possesses three azimuthing drives which allow for

increased Bollard Pull and manoeuvrability. Factory Acceptance Testing has successfully been completed. Shipment and delivery of the system to the Port of Rotterdam is expected by the end of 4th quarter, 2011.
