So, with Damen recently demonstrating their new RSD (reverse stern drive) tug in Southampton and after a short visit to Dover she is now in Rotterdam.
Can someone from the tugging world please tell me the difference between an RSD and a ATD, because I cannot tell the difference myself?
Yes this new design is a meter longer and wider (2513) than the likes of the ZP Bear/Boxer etc. (2412) but fundamentally they look the same. So I am unsure of the new term 'Reverse Stern Drive'. http://www.tugtechnologyandbusiness.com/news/view,iinnovationi-leads-the-way-in-harbour-towage_52117.htm
