Zsombor River Towboat (1200 HP)

Our Heavy-Duty Flagship

The number one towboat in our fleet, with 1200 hp. It is capable of transporting 4 barges of type TS, 80 m long, in 7 different pushing configurations with a total load of 2200 tonnes. It has a square bow and stern construction to ensure a solid connection between the towboat and the pushed equipment.

In addition to transporting the barges, it can also be used as a marshalling vessel in the working area or for anchor installation with the help of mooring barge. Its wheelhouse can be raised or lowered to obtain a good visibility.


The original hull was built in Berlin in 1972. Our company bought it in 2007, and in 2008 it was refurbished and completely rebuilt in preparation for the completion of the Megyeri Bridge. Since then, it has been involved in the construction of almost all bridges, including the Deák Ferenc Bridge, the Monostori Bridge in Komárom, the Southern Railway Bridge and the Kalocsa-Paks Danube Bridge.
