Radio Holland received an order for a Navigation & Communication package for a 250-passenger, aluminium catamaran ferry built by Thecla Bodewes Shipyards (TB Shipyards, headquartered in Harlingen, Netherlands). 

Designed by Conoship International, the ferry is being built for Wyker Dampfschiffs-Reederei Föhr-Amrum (WDR) and will operate between the German Wadden islands and is scheduled for delivery in Q1 2019.

“This specific scope of supply and a tight integration with the ships electrical installation ensures the ferry can sail with a 3-man crew," said Theunis Eelkema, Sales Manager, Radio Holland Delfzijl office. "Radio Holland will supply a complete Nav/Com package, an important part being Furuno equipment.”  

The WDR catamaran will be equipped with the Furuno X-Band Chart Radar FAR-3210 and the X-Band Radar FAR-1518 with high-speed radar scanners, as well as a Phontech Public Address/intercom system. Radio Holland also provides a range of other Furuno equipment including the GPS/satellite compass, Echosounder, Speedlog and AIS. This project will be executed in a tight schedule of 10 weeks.
