Radio Holland Netherlands has agreed a deal to supply a full package of navigation and communications equipment from Furuno to six vessels being built at Royal Bodewes in Hoogezand, the Netherlands.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The package includes Furuno’s FAR-22x8/23x8 series radar with 26-inch screens for all six vessels, as well as a variety of other Furuno ECDIS, echosounder, speedlog, AIS, DGPS, MF/HF, VHF DSC, BNWAS and Inmarsat-C equipment.

These systems will be supplemented by additional navigation and safety equipment from other manufacturers as required.

Three of the vessels are dedicated cement carriers to be delivered to Eureka, part of SMT Shipping, while two of the six are general cargo vessels for the British shipping company Scotline.

The sixth ship is a general cargo vessel under construction for German operator Reederei Braren. All of the vessels are scheduled for delivery during 2019.

“Radio Holland is responsible for the execution, engineering, project management and commissioning of the contract, given our strong relationship with the yard,” said Theunis Eelkema, sales manager services north, Radio Holland.

“Royal Bodewes is very keen to have a single point of contact, preferring short lines of communication. They are used to having us on board and we know the shipyard and people very well. This order shows that Royal Bodewes appreciates our performance on their newbuild vessels over the years.”{/mprestriction}
