A day on board: Kotug International B.V.

Recently I had an interesting oppurtunity, to join along for one day onboard the tugboats of Kotug. Kotug is one of the biggest tugging companies in the Port of Rotterdam and in other ports. In the last decade, Kotug established a trusted reputation by successfully breaking harbour towage monopolies in Rotterdam, Hamburg, Bremerhaven and Le Havre.

In addition to the present fleet of tugboats, Kotug also owns and operates a serie of the innovative Rotortugs. These in-house designed tugs are amongst the most powerful and manoevrable harbour tugs in the world. The unmatched manoeuvrability and massive power reserve enables the Rotortug to reduce the number of tugs required for many jobs considerably,

 I boarded three different vessels on this day: RT Margo, SD Seahorse and RT Magic. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed this day!

A big thanks to Kotug !
