Inland waterway crafts

Inland waterway crafts

Dead weight is predestinated for inland waterway crafts owing to their dimensions and recommend themselves for transports of large-volume or bulky cargo depending on relation.
So-called heavy lift carriers transport any kind of goods that are too heavy or too bulky for containers, complete manufacturing plants or project loads for instance. In case of industrial equipment transporting large-volume, bulky sub-plants would be significantly cheaper since you can forget cost of dismantling and re-assembly.

On loading and unloading heavy lift carriers, extractable stanchions serve stability at times resting on the quay or Schwinn-Caissons that are flooded through stanchions in the water thus representing a counterweight. In addition, there will be an anti-heeling installation as a rule. These are large trimming tanks inside ship's side filled and drained through large ballast water pumps thus performing adjustment of trimming and angle of inclination.

You cannot only transport bridge construction elements, turbines or power plant components at sizes that roads could almost impossibly handle and these parts can be transported cheaper on water including a multitude of other goods fouling any clearance gage.

Germany alone has federal waterways exceeding 7,000 km.
But also beyond Europe's borders, up to the GUS countries, we can offer or organize transport of your cargo on rivers Dnepr, Prypjat, Beresina and Dnepr/Bug Channel employing inland navigation.

Russia in particular has the longest inland navigation network in the world with some 12,000 km of navigable rivers. Therefore, transport of large cargo is specially suitable using inland navigation there. Transport of goods through channels such as Belmovsko-Baltijski, Volga-Don and Moscow-Volga is mostly possible without transshipment.

We can furthermore offer our customers a best possible utilization of inland waterway crafts for all kinds of heavy load and oversize load utilizing, respectively, employing ships such as the "Volga-Don" with approx. 5,000 tons payload and the "Oksky" with about 1,000 tons.

You should not forget that there are no bans on nighttime, Sunday and public holiday driving to say nothing of environmental compatibility or relief of roads.
