TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION

DDSG takes great pride in continuously developing and improving its fleet with the aim of increasingly better meeting our clients’ needs as well as complying with the latest requirements and regulations for shipping operations

Thanks to considerable investments that have been realized in the last years, we are able to provide first class service to our clients. Significant efforts have been undertaken to also increase fleet’s pushing capacity and power, to equip vessels with necessary hardware for safe day and night navigation, as well as installation of IT equipment for communication and of a tracking system.

NEW TOP TECHNOLOGY PUSHER

ENGINES

POWER

CONVOYS

modern main engines and new propeller systems

 power output threefold to approx. 3,200 HP

convoys with up to 9 barges or 19,000 tons of cargo respectively

The pushers “Wien” and “Budapest” were equipped with modern main engines and new propeller systems, thereby increasing the power output threefold to approx. 3,200 HP. These improvements allow to push convoys with up to 9 barges or 19,000 tons of cargo respectively.

Leveraging upon extensive ship design and shipping operations knowledge, we have built two modern pushers from previously self-propelled cargo vessels. The vessels have extraordinary hydrodynamic characteristics and were fitted with modern engines, thereby extending DDSG’s existing fleet by these super powered pushers. Self-propelled cargo vessels m/v “Greifenstein” and m/v “Dürnstein” were cut and each rebuilt in the linear power pusher 2.500 kW and 2.100 kW respectively, as well as barge-section with a thruster.

 In addition to an increased loading capacity, this innovative hatch cover system makes loading and discharging operations in ports easier, safer and more efficient.

The self-propelled cargo vessel “Barbara Blomberg” was equipped with a new and unique flexible hatch cover system. In addition to an increased loading capacity, this innovative hatch cover system makes loading and discharging operations in ports easier, safer and more efficient. The sister-ships “Johann Strauss” and “Herzogenburg” are currently undergoing the same modifications on their hatch covers.

The fully renovated m/v “Miskolc” is very efficient during shallow water periods thanks to a specially designed draft and a capability to perform “push and tug” operations.

The recent complete overhaul of “Ganz’s” type floating cranes including the installation of remote control systems significantly improved the loading and discharging performance

The recent complete overhaul of “Ganz’s” type floating cranes including the installation of remote control systems significantly improved the loading and discharging performance.

We successfully use special additives to diesel fuel on our vessels, which contributes to efficient operation of the engine, reducing fuel consumption, as well as its maximum combustion. Moreover, environmental pollution is reduced.
