Waterway with a Future
In April 2014, the Waterways and Shipping Administration Rheine, Germany, put the second chamber of
the new twin lock Münster into operation. Now the waterway is prepared for the future requirements of
inland shipping. All motion sequences of the lock are being realized and controlled by means of an electro-hydraulic system solution from Rexroth. The new technology is significantly safer, more powerful,
environmentally friendly, and requires less maintenance than previous solutions.
