ENERGY REQUIREMENTS OF INLAND WATERWAY TRANSPORT AND FREIGHT TRAINS (COMPLETE TRAIN-LOADS) CARRYING HEAVY BULK GOODS

DER ENERGIEBEDARF VON BINNENSCHIFFEN UND GUETERZUEGEN (GANZZUEGEN) BEIM MASSENGUTTRANSPORT

The results of a study, published in No. 4-5 1971 of this magazine, on the fuel consumption of inland waterway or rail transport carrying heavy bulk goods was seriously questioned by the Test Centre for inland waterway vessel construction. In reply to this criticism, the author compares here the figures for energy consumption for motor boats and diesel locomotives. From this comparison, it can be seen that, as far as energy is concerned, transporting heavy bulk goods by inland waterway is no cheaper than by rail.
