Emergency Towing Vessel, Concepts for a New Centrury of Emergency Towing
An emergency towing vessel (ETV) is a seagoing tug which can perform emergency towing operations. Emergency towage van avert grounding and wrecking and associated oil spill. A model was created to generate and optimize designs. This makes it possible to rapidly design ETVs and to investigate the influence of design variations on the vessel. The model has subsequently been used to design an ETV for South Africa.
