Sustainable Waterways

Inland waterway logistics is the greenest mode of transport today. Danser plays a pioneering role in improving sustainability. For example, we recently refitted one of our existing push-tow combinations, the Eiger Nordwand, with a dual-fuel powertrain. The motors are now powered 99% by liquefied natural gas (LNG). Eiger Nordwand is now the first container barge to be sailing on LNG. The environmental performance of LNG compared to diesel is excellent. LNG produces 20% less CO2 emissions, 80% less NOx, and 99% less particulate matter.

This modification underlines the sustainable ambitions of our company. We do more than just talk about sustainability. We take concrete steps to make a difference. Danser is one of the initiators of the platform ‘VoortVarend Besparen’ (Efficient Barging). We have also won a Green Award and participate in Lean and Green. Implementing green initiatives are a priority for Danser. The organization has consciously set a green course for the future.
