Wärtsilä HY TUG propulsion system

With regulatory compliance becoming more and more of a global issue, Wärtsilä is launching new propulsion systems for tugs emphasising environmental sustainability. The systems have been developed utilising the company’s strong competences in hybrid propulsion technology. Since tugs typically operate in or close to harbours, they are particularly affected by environmental considerations, and the need to reduce emissions is an increasing concern for tug owners and operators.
