THE MOD-TUG-A NEW CONCEPT IN SHIPHANDLING TUGS
The Mod-Tug, developed by Marine Martin Co. Ltd and David J. Seymour, can deliver a consistently high thrust in any desired horizontal direction without changing its hull orientation. One version is a steel- hulled tug having twin omni-directional thruster units incorporating Kaplan propellers in nozzles. Each propeller is independently powered by an inboard Diesel engine and can deliver full thrust through 260 deg. orientation. The Mod-Tug has been designed as a harbour tug to perform shiphandling, push-tow, pull-tow, fire-fighting, and salvage duties.
