Concordia Shipbuilding BV will soon start construction of the vessels

Europe’s road network is getting more and more congested. At the same time, transport facilities on small waterways are underutilised and shipped numbers continue to fall. With the Watertruck+ project, Flanders and Europe want to encourage freight to move from the road to the water by introducing a new concept consisting of innovative barges and push boats. Concordia Shipbuilding BV will soon be starting construction of the vessels. If all goes according to plan, the first barges will be launched in the spring of 2018.
