Tugs are some of the hardest working vessels on the water. They have a vital need for power, reliability and maneuverability. Tugs are strongly built to meet the strenuous demands of towing, pushing, maneuvering, and assisting other vessels and cargo.
The efficiency and construction of the propulsion system can have a significant impact on the bollard pull and thrust achieved. Nautican systems are specifically designed to maximize efficiency while greatly increasing available power. Our products are built using the highest quality materials and craftsmanship and are engineered to cut down on maintenance, to provide reliable results, and to last the lifetime of the vessel.
Nautican products have been used in numerous applications from ocean-going tugs, quad screw river tugs and inter-island assist vessels, and from shallow to deep water. Based upon the tug and the specific requirements upon it, Nautican integrated propulsion units, propellers, nozzles and rudders have been used to boost bollard pulling power by up to 50 percent and to reduce fuel consumption by 10 to 25 percent.
