  6. 6. Mampaey DOT ® System 360° all around towing platform
  7. 7. How does it looks like?
  8. 8. A Tug equipped with a DOT <ul><li>Can do anything a conventional tug can! </li></ul><ul><li>And in addition to that the DOT enhances the: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety, since it can not capsize anymore </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency, since it makes use of the hydrodynamic forces </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility, since it integrates all towing operations into one system with a continuous towline connection </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability, even at higher speeds </li></ul><ul><li>Without any restrictions to any other operation </li></ul><ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>
  9. 9. Safety <ul><li>Stability is significantly increased by a movable towline attachment </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Capsizing due to towline forces is prevented </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>
  10. 10. Stability increases Safety <ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>
  11. 11. Stability Fixed Towing Point <ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>Reasonable risk of capsizing due to towline forces is unlikely!
  12. 12. Stability with 360° towing Likeliness of capsizing due to towline forces is unlikely! <ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>
  13. 13. Efficiency <ul><li>Taking advantage of forces </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Since the tug can not capsize anymore, the tugs’ resistance in all directions can be used for generating steering and breaking forces. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use of Dynamic forces instead of straight propulsion power saves fuel </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>
  14. 14. Hydrodynamic Forces Since the tug can not capsize anymore…. <ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>
  15. 15. Full Flexibility <ul><li>Full scope of towing operations integrated in one single system: </li></ul><ul><li>Standard conventional towing over the stern (unchanged) </li></ul><ul><li>Dynamic escorting over the bow </li></ul><ul><li>Dynamic braking and steering from the sides </li></ul><ul><li>Smooth operation with continuous towline connection. </li></ul><ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>
  16. 16. Conversion to a DOT-tug <ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>
  17. 17. Remember, a tug equipped with a DOT Can do anything a conventional tug can! <ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>
  18. 18. And much more, like dynamic breaking and steering from the sides <ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>
  19. 19. and dynamic escorting over the bow <ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>
  20. 20. Full Controllability <ul><li>Controllability in all directions </li></ul><ul><li>The oval shape matches the towline force with the tugs’ resistance in one towing system for all directions. </li></ul><ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>
  21. 21. Full Controllability <ul><li>Is achieved with minimal use of propulsion power when the towline force is matched with the hydrodynamic forces. </li></ul><ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>
  22. 22. When towline forces are not aligned Tug will rotate…. <ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>
  23. 23. When towline forces are not aligned until the forces are aligned Tug will rotate…. <ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>
  24. 24. Controlling direction of tug Option 1: Conventional “Solving” Solution; Engine Power <ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>limited to a certain speed and propulsion power!
  25. 25. Controlling direction of tug Option 2: “Dissolving” the Problem; Aligning Towline Force <ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>In control without engine power at any speed!
  26. 26. Controllability when: <ul><li>Full controllability is achieved with minimal use of propulsion power when the towline force is matched with the hydrodynamic forces. </li></ul><ul><li>BUT…… </li></ul><ul><li>The position of the center of lateral resistance is different when the direction of the tug changes. </li></ul><ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>
  27. 27. That’s why current tugs have two towing installations: 1 2 <ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>
  28. 28. The changing of the hull forces How to align the towline with the forces acting upon the hull for all directions into one towing system? Only an OVAL can do this! <ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>
  29. 29. An oval with moving carriages <ul><li>The DOT-system: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Controllability </li></ul>is always matching the towline with the hydrodynamic forces!
