Founded in 1889, Seattle-based Foss Mari-time offers a complete range of maritime ser-vices and project management to customers across the Pacific Rim, Europe, South Ameri-ca and around the globe. With one of the largest fleets of tugs and barges on the Ameri-can West Coast, Foss operates two shipyards and offers worldwide marine transportation, emphasizing safety, environmental responsi-bility and high-quality service. Logan Clutch is proud to have been involved with the conversion of the Dolphin Class tug Campbell Foss into the Worlds second Hybrid Tug.

The flange output of the clutch was connected by a shaft to the motor
