Superstructure yard number 861 turned

Progress construction electric inspection ship

Recently the hull of yard number 861 was successfully turned at the Royal Niestern Sander shipyard. With this action, another step was taken in the building process of the new electrical inspection vessel of the province of Groningen.

Groninger scoop

The new vessel is the first green, fully electrically driven utility vessel in the Netherlands. The installation of a battery pack on an utility ship of such size and power is unique. In addition, the ship will soon have the latest technical developments in the field of sustainability, such as energy saving, use of residual heat, use of sustainable wood and paint types and a silent electric motor. In short, a smart & green ship. The province uses the vessel for supervision and enforcement of shipping and events in Groningen. After a European tender, the contract was awarded in February 2018 to Royal Niestern Sander from Delfzijl.
