Our ability to provide pragmatic advice stems from a vast local knowledge and passion for the canals. Drawing on 50 years of family involvement with the canals, Ian Rothen, MD has a unique comprehension of the whole country’s network and its differences whether it be in build, architecture or structure enabling the best solution & approach for our clients. The understanding of what floating plant is best for each area or client, is second to none and we feel few companies have the knowledge of the canals and their heritage as The Rothen Group.


Our knowledge of the waterway network enables us to send the optimal equipment and facilitate loading sites based on our local knowledge which keeps costs down and maximizes efficiency for the client. In some instances, experienced operators are provided to work as part of the clients team.
