Inland Water Transport

Rely on our universally applicable products

We are the ideal partner for reliable power and light supply on freight and passenger ships in inland waterway transport. Our inland and seawater resistant products are universally applicable. Our eco-line LED searchlight SCORPIUS made from powder-coated aluminium is particularly popular.

For cargo ships transporting hazardous goods, our range also includes explosion-proof products in compliance with the current ATEX directives, thus ensuring the necessary safety.

In addition to large cruise ships, tourist inland waterway vessels are also becoming increasingly popular. From ship lighting to electronic installation material – our portfolio not only ensures the necessary safety, but also provides atmospheric elements due to our high design standards.

Push boats form a special clientele. Similar to tractor units, these are extremely powerful ships that do not carry cargo themselves, but push one or more barges in front of them. These floating cargo containers without own motor units do often have a considerable length of over 73 metres and have no crew on board. It is therefore particularly important to have good visibility and lighting on the water to prevent accidents. In this context, high-quality searchlights are essential. KARL DOSE has for example equipped the push boat MIA ROSA with two LED searchlights of the VIRGO series made of stainless steel.
