Emission Eiger-Nordwand compared to CCR I + II
The high capacity and low fuel consumption makes inland waterway transport one of the most environmentally friendly modes of transport. The positive balance of inland waterway transport is due to the low fuel consumption per tonne-kilometer.
This is not sufficient!
For years Danser Group is focusing on increasing the sustainability of the fleet. In 2011 the company was also awarded the Lean & Green Award. This by achieving a CO2 reduction of 25% across the fleet within two years. 3 of Danser Groups push tow combinations have a Green Award for Inland transport. They have met the strict requirements. These vessels are powered by 2 CCR2 class engines.
With the conversion of the Eiger Nordwand to LNG, Danser Group again made a pioneering contribution in the field of sustainability. The LNG refitted ship is in operation on the Rhine service from Rotterdam / Antwerp to Basel since July 2015, and on the first validation the delivered emission values are even better than predicted by the engine manufacturer. When compared to CCR2 class engines an impressive reduction in emissions is again achieved.
