Concordia Damen contracted for River Pusher to Paraguay

Paraguayan shipowner and operator Girona S.A. – Rio Sur Transporte y Logistica has contracted Dutch inland shipping construction yard Concordia Damen to build a CDS4115 Shallow Draft 5,400hp River Pusher to expand its fleet.

The family-owned company is one of the most traditional waterway transport companies in Paraguay, serving many customers along the 2695km Paraguay River.

Concordia Damen has thoroughly researched the Paraguay River characteristics in relation to the desired operational profile of the vessel.

Based on this its engineers designed the most efficient pusher considering local conditions.

This resulted in a proven low draft push boat design, several of which have already been built for and delivered to Paraguayan clients in the past. The 5,400hp river pusher is a further development of theseearlier pushers.

The CDS4115 type measures 41 x 15.5m. In a push-barge configuration with 12-barges, the combination will measure 281m long  x 48m wide. The three Yanmar 6EY22AW engines generate a power of 1330 kW each.
