ART 80-32 Rotor®
The Rotortstfug distinguishes itself from conventional ASD, tractor or Voith designs by using three azimuth propulsion units, oriented in a triangular configuration. Manoeuvrability is superior to the conventional designs, with enhanced safety during towing and escort opérations. Other benefits include an added level of redundancy with the triple engine and thruster combination and higher bollard pull in ail directions. As the 80-32 sériés name implies, the 32 metre tug delivers a bollard pull of over 80 tonnes, both ahead and astem, with a free running speed of 13 knots.
Six crew can be accommodated, two in single master and engineer cabins on the main deck and four more in two 2-man cabins on the lower deck.
