Low Water – tense situation on the Rhine

Last night the gauge level at Kaub fell below the 55 cm mark. This means that approximately one third of our fleet is not able to navigate the Middle Rhine (“Loreley”).

It is feared that gauge levels may fall further during next week. If the Kaub Gauge does in fact fall below 50 cm, an additional 45 percent of our vessels will be unable to navigate this part of the Rhine, so that only one quarter of our fleet would then be available. For the stretch from Basel to Koblenz there would be a further severe limitation of loading capacities.
