First of 40 on the way

The first of 40 inland waterway barges that are being built by Concordia Damen has been launched at the Casco yard in Serbia. Concordia Damen signed the contract for the environmentally friendly vessel.

The vessels, known as the Parsifal Tankers, will be chartered by Shell and operated by the VT Group/Marlow. The vessels will be 110 x 11.45 metres and will feature low emission LNG propulsion and extreme shallow draft capabilities. They will carry mineral oils between Antwerp, Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Rhine network. The VT Group is specialised in the inland shipping of minerals, chemical products, bio fuels and lubricants.

Concordia Damen CEO Chris Kornet said, “We are pleased to have reached this milestone in this important project. The Parsifal Tankers represent a new generation of eco-conscious vessels that will play a significant role in the maritime energy transition. We are looking forward to continuing to develop this project in the coming months.”

Concordia Damen’s core business is designing and building inland waterway vessels with an innovative and economic profile. Able to build vessels worldwide, the company is also a shipbroker and manages a fleet of inland navigation vessels. Concordia Damen has delivered more than 140 vessels to ship owners all over the world.
