Kotug Smit Towage’s new azimuth tractor drive (ATD) tug has been placed into service at Southampton, England.

Used for manoeuvring container ships at the terminal, the twin-fin, 24-metre by 13-metre tug Buffalo has 72 tonnes of bollard pull.

She joins sister harbour tugs Rotterdam and Southampton that joined the company’s fleet in 2017.
