Groth


The Groth is a pusher barge designed as a pontoon. Its own length of only 14.06 m shows advantages e.g. when passing through a lock, if several barges or pontoons can be coupled for one lock passage.
Equipped with 2 main engines, the boat can be turned around, cast off or moored in an extremely confined space.

Due to its low draught, the Groth can also be used in shallow water areas for the transport and positioning of floating equipment.
