Successful project management for TB Shipyards
First ultra-economical ‘’wadden’’ ferry for W.D.R. on the water at Thecla Bodewes Shipyards. With a capacity of 250 passengers and an empty ship weight of only 78 tonnes, Thecla Bodewes Shipyards has realized a unique concept in collaboration with Conoship. The light weight of the ship and the optimum hull shape ensure that this ship has very efficient engines with low power to realize its maximum speed of 18 knots. Maritime Projects member, Erik van Prooijen, has managed the entire project, from the first aluminium cut until delivery to her new owner.
