Plug and play steering gear

2 min

Did you know that around 80% of the European inland waterway goods transport relies on the Rhine River? This makes it extremely important for inland vessels to be able to sail unobstructed on the Rhine. But when entering summer season, low water levels are a frequent occurrence.

How can a vessel remain operational for longer with shallow draft? A configuration with a tunnel system might be the solution, such as our Flex Tunnel system.

The retractable Flex Tunnel increases water inflow towards the propeller. Herewith, the risk of not being operational during shallow water periods can be significantly reduced. The plug and play steering gear can be retracted and deployed by a single push of a button in the wheelhouse. The system is flexible in use and does not create resistance when it is not operational.
