TOWAGE CONSIDERATIONS FOR PORT OPERATIONS

The author presents an approach to identifying the fundamental considerations for effective towage in new or existing ports. Some aspects covered are: weather; physical limitations; the tug utilization profile; the mechanics of operations; reliability, maneuverability, visibility and, perhaps, habitability as the most important criteria in tug design; reduced crews; and tug deck design considerations.
