Yugoslav River Shipping is one of the oldest national companies on the Danube. It was founded almost 200 years ago and over time has undergone numerous changes in the structure of the work organization as well as the name. JRB achieved its golden period in the seventies of the last century, and the peak of the company's strength and success was marked by two pusher ships "Karađorđe" and "Karlovac", built in 1980 for the needs of domestic industry.
With many challenges, the company survived the most difficult years of the transition and preserved what is most important, quality crews and a preserved functional fleet.
After more than 20 years, the first serious reconstruction of the ship Karlovac was done. New engines of 1400 kW each have been installed and will push 9 barges of 1700 tons each.
In the video you can see what the ship looks like now.
We hope that the practice of reconstruction and new construction of ships will continue, in the spirit of the growing need to move to a cheap and environmentally friendly mode of transport that is river transport.
We wish JRB a lot of success in its further work and our colleagues peace of mind and a lot of new young staff.
