A new icebreaker for inland water concept
Considering last year’s climate changes, we can expect low temperatures during winter, which can lead to the freezing of Danube river and more. This would prevent the freight traffic in Danube’s ports meaning that the riparian economy would suffer. This paper presents a new concept of breaking the ice. Using an existent tug, we propose the attachment of an icebreaking additional structure. The paper further describes the concept and includes the necessary calculation methods used for the technological design of this ensemble. This concept presents numerous advantages, including the financial aspect.
