Kotug experiences navigation to remote control of a tug

From Marseilles a commander of the society has operated naval means to Rotterdam

Tuesday, in occasion of venticinquesima the edition of International Tug, Salvage & OSV Convention and Exhibition that will be concluded tomorrow to Marseilles, the society of Dutch towing Kotug has held a demonstration of navigation to remote control from long distance. From a console installed near the exhibition event in the French harbour city a commander of the Kotug, through an Internet connection and images of video cameras, has taken the control of tug RT Borkum in navigation to Rotterdam.

Specifying that simple marine operations can already be realized with control of the naval unit from remote, Kotug has specified to consider that the control from remote of naval means without crew constitutes the first step towards an independent navigation without crew of the naval units, technology that - second the Dutch company - is time to a more advanced stage is from the technical point of view that commercial. Moreover Kotug has evidenced that, being independent navigation without crew not still contemplated from the norms and the enforced regulations in matter of marine navigation, it is necessary to include this type of navigation in the norms before the tugs can be employed using these innovative technologies.
