Working visit: The Beerboat, Utrecht

18 June 2018 - Published by Haije Mintjes

Today started with a informative round trip through the historic channels of Utrecht where we were able to see the Ecoboat and "beerboat" in action. The Eco Boat picks up garbage up from businesses located on the "oude gracht". The Stroomboot (aka the beerboat) brings supplies to these restaurants and bars. Both these boats are powered by electricity and reduce the burden that transport through a historic city centre brings significantly! Thank you Harbourmasters of the city of Utrecht to show us this nice example of small waterway solutions!
