NAVROM transports over 10 million tonnes of cargo annually
The company’s cargo fleet comprises covered and uncovered barges with capacities between 1,000 and 3,000 tonnes, barges and hoppers with capacities of 1,000-1,100 tonnes and tank barges with capacities of 1,300 tonnes. For propulsion and manoeuvring, CNFR NAVROM SA has pushers of between 800 and 3,600 hp and tugs of 400-550 hp.
Benefiting from IFC/World Bank funding, NAVROM carried out an extensive fleet modernisation programme in 2006-2007, which consisted of the refitting and complete equipping of 14 liner pushers. Subsequently, the programme continued with its own funds, with the modernisation of 7 manoeuvring pushers, four 1,600 hp shallow draught pushers purchased in 2011-2015 and two other 2,500 hp liner pushers already in the company’s fleet.
