UAE set to test world’s first autonomous tugs

Abu Dhabi Ports is working with naval architects Robert Allan to develop autonomous commercial marine tugs. Together they will research and produce a remotely-controlled tugboat that could be fully unmanned and operate within a wide spectrum of autonomy.

Its maritime service arm, Safeen, will operate the tugs, expanding its fleet of harbour service vessels. Abu Dhabi Ports intends to transfer the human element from on board these tugs to onshore, enabling these vessels to operate in more adverse weather conditions.
