"Welle" - Steamship
The "Welle" is a steamer with a special past.
Before the outbreak of World War I the deepening of the river Weser was pending. Therefore, people were deeply in need of a towboat. The Bremer Atlas-Werke got the allowance in July 1914. The 11th April 1915 marks the day the steamboat “Welle” launched and got delivered in October to the “ Bauamt für Weserkorrektion” (Building Authority for Weser-Adjustment). Next to being “only” a towboat, there were other jobs in need to be done. In cold and harsh winters, the “Welle” was used as an icebreaker.
The instauration of this ship is in hands of the non-profit association only.
