DMC supplies FLEX Tunnels for two pusher-barge combinations
06 October 2022
Damen Marine Components (DMC) has received another order for the supply of FLEX Tunnels, complete rudder systems and Rotor Manoeuvring Systems (RMS), for two new pusher-barge combinations. The client is Den Breejen Shipyard from Hardinxveld-Giessendam. This yard will build the pusher-barge combinations on behalf of Rhenus PartnerShip GmbH & Co. KG in Duisburg. This is a rare collaboration with these being the first complete inland vessels to be built in the Netherlands in a long time.
The FLEX Tunnels will be installed in the two newly built pusher-barge combinations. The highly-regarded retractable tunnel system significantly increases the efficiency and versatility of a ship. DMC is also supplying complete six-rudder systems.
