Hinchinbrook Entrance ETV BAT Assessment

This report assesses and describes the current worldwide best practices being used in the design and operation of highly capable rescue tugboats.

Using this information, the contractor developed a description of best available technology in way of rescue tugs, identified a towing vessel in the worldwide fleet that represents best available technology (BAT) for service at Hinchinbrook Entrance, and compared that vessel to Ross Chouest, the current Utility/Sentinel Tug serving Hinchinbrook Entrance.
