The Joint Branch of RINA and IMarEST (Singapore), Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers, Singapore and the Centre for Offshore Research and Engineering will be organizing a Technical Talk on Wednesday, 26 February 2013, 7.00 pm at the Engineering Auditorium, Faculty of Engineering, NUS. The topic for the lecture is “Conversion of Kotug’s RT Adriaan to become Europe’s First Hybrid Tugboat” by Mr. Paul Jamer, Vice President Corporate Development, Aspin Kemp & Associates (AKA).

This presentation will discuss the conversion of RT Adriaan from conventional to hybrid propulsion and the technological challenges that have been overcome. The vessel is the first hybrid tug in Europe and also the first hybrid tug to be built to class standards (Lloyd’s Register). Rotor(r)Tugs are unique in the marine industry as they have two azimuthing drives forward and one aft as opposed to the more conventional Z-Drive vessels with only two drives at the stern. The result is a highly reliable boat with excellent maneuverability and stability characteristics. The addition of a hybrid propulsion system further enhances the vessel’s performance and operational capabilities while providing dramatically increased efficiency. The additional flexibility with respect to propulsion plant configuration enables the vessel to run the minimum number of diesels required at any given time. The use of advanced energy storage also permits periods of operation where no diesel engines are required.

Admission is complimentary. Pre-registration is required and is strictly online latest by 22 January 2013. To confirm your attendance, please register at this link. No video filming or walk-in guest will be entertained for this event.
