Holland Shipyards Group to build new survey vessel
Waterschap Scheldestromen has awarded Holland Shipyards Group a build contract for a new survey vessel.
The new vessel, a replacement of their current vessel, is expected to enter service by the end of 2021.
The vessel measures 15.15m by 4.90m and will be suitable for surveying along the Zeeland coast, up to five nautical miles offshore. It will be provided with two permanent magnet motors, each with a capacity of 85kW, and a variable speed generator set, ensuring optimal fuel consumption and operational reliability by switching generators on and off automatically.
For its hydrographic survey duties it is equipped with both a singlebeam and multibeam echosounders.
While launching as a hybrid the ship’s design takes into account future plans to be potentially converted into a battery powered full electric vessel.
Building of the vessel will start in March at the Holland Shipyards Group’s yard in Werkendam.
