"Welle" - Steam ship
Was successfully used as an icebreaker
Before the outbreak of World War I the deepening of the Weser was pending. Therefore, people were deeply in need of a towboat. The Bremer Atlas-Werke got the allowance in Juli 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 a icebreaker.
The instauration of this ship is in hands of the non-profit association only.
