MS Gambrinus

The towboat MS Gambrinus, built in 1893, was remodelled on diesel-engines propulsion in 1928/29. The Escher-Wyss steam engine was replaced by a two-cycle diesel-engine with four cylinders from company Sulzer.

The diesel-engine suffered damage in winter 2011/12. The motor housing showed major cracks on several places. Shiptec AG was commissioned thereupon with the new-motorization of the ship and finished the setup-work in August 2013.
