Svitzer wins Innovation of the Year Award
At the 2023 International Tug & Salvage Awards, which took place at the biennial TUGTECHNOLOGY conference held in Rotterdam this year, Svitzer was awarded Innovation of the Year in recognition of the TRAnsverse Tug.
The Innovation of the Year award recognises outstanding and innovative designs, projects, or vessel operations that have set new benchmarks in the tug industry over the last 12 months.
Svitzer worked with Robert Allan Ltd to design the next-generation multipurpose tug with leading manoeuvring and escort capabilities supporting all types of harbour and terminal towage operations, while reducing fuel consumption. It has an omnidirectional hull form and propulsion system enabling safe, swift and seamless transition between direct and indirect towing modes.
Congratulations to all of the winners at the 2023 Intl. Tug & Salvage Awards!
