CONCORDIA DAMEN LAUNCHES FIRST OF 40 GREEN INLAND TANKERS IN SERBIA

Tuesday, June 8, 2021 

The first of 40 inland waterway vessels that are being built by Concordia Damen has been launched at the Casco yard in Serbia.

Concordia Damen signed the contract for the environmentally friendly vessels late last year. The vessels, known as the Parsifal tanker class, will be chartered by Shell and operated by the VT Group/Marlow. The vessels will be of 110m length and 11.45m width, featuring low emission LNG propulsion and extreme shallow draught capabilities. They will carry mineral oils between Antwerp, Amsterdam, Rotterdam and the Rhine network. The VT Group specialises in the inland shipping of minerals, chemical products, bio fuels and lubricants.

Concordia Damen CEO Chris Kornet said: “We are pleased to have reached this milestone in this important project. The Parsifal Tankers represent a new generation of eco-conscious vessels that will play a significant role in the maritime energy transition. We are looking forward to continuing to develop this project in the coming months.”
