MS Shakespeare & MS Charles Dickens. Formerly employed by Bijlsma Erik has managed the yard during the new build of these vessels. The 110 x 11 meter river cruisers are 4,5 star for luxury. The vessels were built in a record time of respectively 9 and 8 months and that is including the production of their steel hulls. They operate for Select Voyages on the European rivers.
MV Artic junior. Formerly employed by Bijlsma Erik has arranged the contract, development, engineering and purchasing for this project. The project was sold to the Artic Group, a company that is specialized in providing fish food to the Salmon farms in the Norwegian fjords. The vessel has a highly sophisticated loading and discharging system for fish feed. Very special about this project is that it is in fact the conversion of an existing new hull for a freighter into this concept. The hull was shortened to be able to reach the ports, the decks were raised and closed.
MV Cembrook. Formerly employed by Bijlsma Erik has arranged the contract, development, engineering and subcontracting for this project. The vessel was sold to Brise Hamburg, a company that is specialized in the transport of cement. This project is actually a conversion of an existing new hull into a sophisticated cement carrier. The loading and discharging system is based on a pneumatic slide system and is fully integrated in the design of the vessel. The vessel was lengthened, the decks were raised, 3 large generators were installed, the loading and discharging was installed, etc.
Container vessel Rean-L, On behalf of the owners and in collaboration with Blue World, Remko was involved in the design of this energy efficient vessel. Supervising the built in Beograde, Serbia and outfitting in Hasselt, Netherlands was part our work. Important developments are: energy efficient propulsion train, low hull resistance (for example built in anchors) and sophisticated design.
4 x Freezer vessel. This series of 4 freezer vessels are designed for the transportation of cargo’s like tuna, etc. Very special characteristics were the modernized ship-to-ship transfer system with the union-purchase principle, the full frozen cargo spaces which can be maintained at different temperatures. For this project, Maritime Projects was contracted by Groot Ship Design to perform the overall project management of the engineering. Together with the team from Groot Ship Design we have delivered the full basic engineering package to the Guangxin Shipbuilding & Heavy Inustry CO.,LTD (GSHI) yard in Zongshan (China). We have been traveling to GSHI several times to explain what we have designed and how this should be incorporated in their detailed engineering model.
MV Juice express. On March 13th MV Juice express has been delivered by GSHI yard to Seatrade in The Netherlands. This freighter is a unique design to transport different kinds of juices in stainless steel tanks. Both orange- and pineapple juice can be transported in frozen and cooled conditions. The vessel has the patented Groot Crossbow, delivering very good fuel economics. Groot Ship Design, being the designer of this vessel, has contracted Maritime Projects to perform the overall project management of the engineering; this contained the delivery of the full basic engineering package to the GSHI yard in Zongzhan (China). We have been traveling to GSHI several times to explain what we have designed and how this should be incorporated in their detailed engineering model.
