A solution for small waterways of CEMT class I and II is offered by the Watertruck+ concept which was developed in Belgium and is EU-funded. The concept is based on modularly designed and deadweight-optimised ship types, which can be self-propelled or economically operated as lighters in push boat-lighter combinations. For more information, watch this video.
Currently 25 ships are under construction. It is planned to create a Europe-wide fleet of 500 ships. WAGENER & HERBST supports the Watertruck+ project as a consultant for East Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, the Baltic States and Scandinavia. The W&H Inland Navigation experts Dr. Georg Seidel and Dr. Norbert Wagener will gladly provide further information and will advise you free of charge if you are interested in Watertruck+.
