TCO Model


This model is developed within the project ‘Breakthrough LNG deployment in Inland Waterway Transport’ and co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union.

This model is constructed to give the user a global view on his/her personal business case for equipping their inland vessel with an LNG propulsion.

The results of this analysis should give an idea whether or not it is useful to start investigating the possibility of equipping the inland vessel with an LNG propulsion.

Further, this model should serve as a sound base for starting discussions with potential financiers.


The assumptions used in this model are a snapshot at a certain point in time. These values don't grant the user any claim on certain price conditions. The assumptions are based on an ex-ante cost/benefit analysis of best available LNG technologies for inland vessels. The analysis can be found on the following webpage:
