CORAGE and CURIOSITY
H2-ready low-water vessels
The new low-water vessel "COURAGE" was officially put into operation at the beginning of March 2023. It will supply customers of the materials manufacturer with finished products from the North Rhine-Westphalian locations with immediate effect. The identical sister ship "CURIOSITY" will be delivered end of 2023.
The two low-water vessels are among the most modern and innovative of their kind. They are equipped with a particularly efficient diesel-electric drive, which reduces CO2 emissions by up to 30 per cent compared to the ships currently in use. Emissions of particulate matter and other pollutants will also be significantly reduced. At the same time, the ships are already prepared for the technological developments of the future: This is because both the "COURAGE" and "CURIOSITY" are H2- and future-fuel-ready respectively.
Thanks to their special design, they can be converted to new propulsion systems such as hydrogen as soon as they are ready for the market.
