Funding for Inland Waterway Vessels

Environmentally friendly fleet modernisation - EXPIRED!

Inland waterway navigation is a safe and environmentally friendly mode of transport and should therefore be encouraged to develop and grow. bmvit is committed to assisting companies with the environmentally friendly modernisation of their fleets and supporting them with the implementation of new technologies.  

Based on the results of international research, the programme "Aid Scheme for Green Inland Waterway Vessels" (Förderprogramm umweltfreundliches Binnenschiff) has been developed as part of the implementation of the National Action Plan for the Danube. Direct grants are available for the refitting of ships with environmentally friendly equipment and machinery. For more information, please refer to the documents below.
