Vessel designs for two routes suitable for high-speed inland freight transport

Based on required specifications, design for two types of PACSCAT River Freighters were prepared with accompanying general arrangement drawings.
The 135m long designs for the Danube were designed to carry 45 trucks in a RoRo configuration. A similar rigged vessel was designed to carry 240 TEU for operation on the lower Rhine? Both could transport deadweight of about 2000t at up to 38km/hr (20kts) in shallow water only 1.5m deep.
