Leading technology for sustainable inland shipping


These are exciting times for inland shipping. PortLiner is proud of its achievements so far and thrilled by the challenges we see for the future.

We invite you to be part of our journey.

We believe that the innovative projects we are working on, as well as our plans for future development will bring completely new technology standards  in the  field of inland transport along rivers and canals


PortLiner’s aim is “zero emission” inland shipping and smart use of alternative energy sources.

A key feature in PortLiner’s approach is  flow battery technology, using Vanadium Redox Flow Batteries (VRFB)  for ship propulsion. PortLiner’s aim is to configure a battery recharging strategy that will allow for additional battery deployment in the electricity markets, as well as for mobile off-grid applications.
