Crew free tugboat makes progress

Engineering giant Rolls Royce and global towage operator Svitzer have successfully demonstrated the worlds first remotely operated commercial vessel in Copenhagen harbour.
Earlier this year Svitzers tug, Svitzer Hermod, conducted a number of remotely operated manouvres. The vessel undocked performed a 360 degree turn and then navigated to Svitzers HQ quay before docking again.
