Emergency Towing Systems are designed to make it easy for a tug to pick up the towing line of a stricken ship The  Lifting & Marine Services  emergency towing system was originally designed for tankers loading at the Oil fields in the North Sea. Over time, the system has evolved, been developed, and today meets all the requirements of the new safety of life at sea (SOLAS) regulation.

The LMS "ETS" is designed so that a tug can easily pick up the towing line from a stricken ship if its main engine fails or some other emergency situation should occur. It is a high quality and compact design, with ease of installation for both new builds and existing vessels, are all important factors in ensuring complete customer satisfaction.
