Integrated bridge systems delivered to Texelstroom

JRC and Alphatron Marine have completed the delivery of integrated bridge systems to the double ended passenger ferry Texelstroom, built at La Naval Shipyard in Bilbao, Spain.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The fully integrated Alphabridge features navigation, internal communication and observation equipment, steering control and various workstations, with the exact same equipment installed on both ends of the vessel.

A remote controlled CCTV system featuring 32 IP cameras operated from three different stations is also integrated, with a custom built docking system that detects the distance to shore from several locations.

The bridges work independently from each other and include safety override switching between both ends.

The ship, owned by Dutch company Texels Eigen Stoomboot Onderneming (TESO), will sail between the city of Den Helder on the mainland and the West Frisian island of Texel, situated in the North Sea off the Dutch coast, along the edge of the Wadden Sea.{/mprestriction}
