WORLD’S FIRST EVER HYDROGEN-POWERED INLAND SHIPPING BARGE

November 27, 2023

Dutch shipping firm Lenten Scheepvaart will go down in history as the owner of the world’s first-ever newbuild hydrogen-powered inland shipping barge. With this, the shipping company sets a new standard. An important step towards zero-emission transport on Dutch inland waterways. The Hydrogen Electric Cargo Ship ‘Antonie’ (WEVA) was realised by Concordia Damen. On 23 October the technical sea trials were held, during which the ship was inspected by Lloyd’s Register and received a provisional certificate to be put into service.
Concordia Damen core business is designing and building inland waterway, offshore and seagoing vessels with an innovative and economic profile.
