TRACTOR TUG: CONCEPTUAL DESIGN TO IMPLEMENTATION

The feasibility of using a tractor tug of greater than 7000 hp as a dedicated escort tug for 120 000dwt oil tankers was researched. The paper described the analysis, model tests, and contract design package for such a tug. Subsequently, this tug was used as escort and, through full-scale trials of realistic emergency scenarios, an operational procedure was developed, jointly implemented by tanker captains, tug captains and pilots.
