Kongsberg Maritime’ to deliver winches to 16 escort tugs

Kongsberg Maritime has signed a large contract with Turkish tugboat builder Med Marine to deliver heavy duty, Escort Series towing winches for nine escort tugs equipped with azimuth stern drives (ASD). This order follows on from a contract signed earlier this year to supply winches for seven tugs. The new agreement brings the total number of Kongsberg’s winch supply contracts for Med Marine to 16 shipsets.
Kongsberg Maritime and Med Marine have a longstanding relationship, with many Med Marine-built tugs featuring Kongsberg technology and equipment. Kongsberg is one of the world’s leading suppliers of deck machinery, propulsion engineering and digital technology for tugs and workboats worldwide.
