Construction of harbour tugs

One of the most used vessels in port activity are harbour tugs, necessary to support the maneuverability of vessels and emergency cases.

 

What is a harbour tug?

A harbour tug is a type of vessel specially designed to offer the necessary support during the different maneuvers carried out by other vessels  or floating devices within the port.

 

Functions of harbour tugs

In port areas, these tugboats, in collaboration with the pilot, have the main objective of guaranteeing maximum safety and avoiding possible accidents and collisions with structures, the mainland, shoals or other vessels. In a good number of countries, using a harbour tug during port entry and exit maneuvers is mandatory for large vessels. Specifically, the functions of a harbour tug are as follows:

  • To assist the vessel in the docking and undocking maneuvers.
  • To assist the vessel in the turn in a limited space.
  • To offer the necessary support to counteract the force of the wind, waves or currents.
  • To help stop the vessel.
  • To tow, push or assist the vessel that has been left without means of propulsion or steering.
  • To transport floating artifacts from one place to another.
  • To offer escort, in anticipation of loss of government, to vessels with dangerous cargo in high-risk areas.

 

SYM Naval harbour tugs, complete adaptation

To fulfill the functions previously described, harbour tugs must be designed complying with the fundamental characteristics of maneuverability, stability, and power. In this sense, at SYM Naval we offer a complete range of harbour tugs, positioning ourselves in the segment of the most efficient tugboats on the market and fully adapting to the needs and requirements of the shipowners, involving them from the beginning of the design through the digital model of the tugboat.

In addition, we make sure to offer the highest level of quality in all the materials and equipment used while strictly complying with the delivery deadlines agreed with the shipowner.
