Watertruck aims at the further development and optimization of cargo transport using small inland waterways by introducing a new navigational concept, consisting of a pusher and adapted pushed barges. As a result, an efficient and flexible road haulage model is applied to inland navigation. The two most important characteristics and advantages in comparison to the traditional inland navigation with motorised inland vessels are:
- No longer accommodation on board of the innovative, small pusher
- Decoupling of loading/unloading from the navigation itself
In March 2012, the first Watertruck pilot took place, transporting slurry from Brussels to Liège.
