How does it looks like?

A Tug equipped with a DOT Can do anything a conventional tug can! And in addition to that the DOT enhances the: Safety, since it can not capsize anymore Efficiency, since it makes use of the hydrodynamic forces Flexibility, since it integrates all towing operations into one system with a continuous towline connection Controllability, even at higher speeds Without any restrictions to any other operation The DOT-system: Safety Efficiency Flexibility Controllability
