Innovation & Sustainability

KOTUG has built its reputation as an innovative player in the maritime industry, thanks to years of experience and knowledge.A strong focus is placed on the development of new technologies (in-house or in close collaboration with the maritime industry), on fleet optimisation in all its aspects and on the management and continuous improvement of technical & nautical expertise and knowledge throughout the company.

With the invention of the Rotortug in 1999, KOTUG changed the game and brought the towage industry into the next century. Thanks to the remarkable advantages of the Rotortug, safe manoeuvres made a huge leap forward. With the high demands and ever growing transportation capacity, stress on the company carbon footprint increased. With this in mind KOTUG adopted an active Green Policy. Based on this policy, KOTUG operates three Hybrid Rotortugs (E-KOTUG), RT Adriaan, RT Evolution and RT Emotion. The E-KOTUG has many advantages which are amongst others: reduced emissions, fuel-efficiency and noise reduction.
