It has an established an enviable track record as a market leader in the provision of this service to blue chip towage companies and oil majors.

BMT’s extensive experience of shallow water hydrodynamics and manoeuvring simulation has allowed it to engineer bespoke simulation facilities at the clients location for the purpose of training tug captains and other marine personnel.

Inshore tows are particularly challenging because of the extremely small hull clearances within the shipping channels leading from the yards. Up to five independently controlled tug boats will be effectively, rigidly coupled to the hull to perform the 15 mile wet-tows.
