Development of an intermodal transportation system for edible liquids using europe's inland waterway system

Objective

Main goal of the project is to develop a flexible adaptation of existing inland vessels to make them suitable for the transportation of edible liquids. This development will enable multi-modal transport of such liquids. This objective is achieved by installing a large number of standard (stainless) 20" ISO tank containers in the hold, which will be insulated to keep the products at the required temperature. The tank containers will be interconnected by a piping system and a pump unit, in such a way that a fully self-supporting tanker vessel is created at minimal cost. The system offers a high level of flexibility: Ships can be equipped with the tank container system to the extent needed.
