Last week we had a successful trial run with the Pieter van der Wees, the new pusher of Koninklijke Van der Wees Transport Groep. Veth Propulsion by Twin Disc, Inc. has delivered to this new pusher two Veth Z-drives, a Tunnel bow thruster and a 400 kVA Scania generator set. On this glorious day the pusher achieved more than the tests under heavy conditions. The convoy consisted of 3 cargo barges (ca. 22x160) with a total of 7250 tons of cargo (excl. the own weight of the barges). We are proud with the end result.
