Eddy Tug

Take for example the revolutionary hybrid tug ‘Telstar’. Designed and built around three simple key-criteria – safety, performance and economy. This so-called Eddy Tug is a response to the increased demand for compact harbour tugs adjusted to suit the operational requirements of Iskes in the Amsterdam – IJmuiden port. The diesel-direct / diesel-electrical hybrid drive train greatly increases the manoeuvrability of the tug, which is helpful in currents, near large vessels, or in confined spaces such as locks.
