We are pleased to announce that after four years we have completed the FernSAMS project together with our partners. The work in the FernSAMS project served to define the feasibility of a remote-controlled harbour tug in its sub-areas. The concepts developed were verified with the help of modelling, simulation tests and under model conditions.
The expertise available at MTC with regard to the practical implementation of towing operations and their technical backgrounds made a significant contribution to a possible implementation in practice. Through the training plans developed during the project period, MTC is able to train personnel for remote-controlled harbour tugs, once the tugs beeing available.

Due to technical problems, the MTC cannot currently be reached by phone or email.
We are working on solving this problem as soon as possible.
We ask for your understanding.
Your team of MTC
