The global growth in marine transport and the accompanying increase in the volume and complexity of harbor operations have expanded the tug sector in recent years. Simultaneously, the general increase in vessel size, such as that experienced within the container and tanker sectors, has prompted the development of larger, more powerful tugs.

Modern tugs require cost-efficient propulsion systems (with low first-costs), while the nature of harbor operations demands that engines possess great adaptability to low-load operation. Harbors are also environmentally sensitive areas and, accordingly, emission requirements are strict in terms of NOx and particulate matter.
