Tug / Push boats

Triple propelled

Our VEKA tug/push boats are special designed for inland waterways with shallow draft. For manoeuvring the boat is equipped with double electric-hydraulic steering gears units, which are mounted in the aft ship controlling three fishtail rudders and on SB and PS each two retractable flanking rudders are mounted in front of the propeller nozzles. During the normal sailing activities, the flanking rudders can be retracted. When the flanking rudders are retracted they will not give any hydrodynamic resistance. The flanking rudders can be ejected for manoeuvring and are very useful at shallow waters.
