Next generation harbour towage eliminating the towrope
Tugboats use ropes to pull and push a ship in the harbour, but ropes cause delays in the manoeuvre leading to accidents. Our technology uses zero emission underwater robots (Towbots) to attach thrusters directly to ships upon arrival in port. The ship can then be controlled directly by the pilot using a handheld device. The Towbot eliminates the 200 year old methodology of using towing lines, improves the response time by 98% and reduces tug operating costs by 30%.
