28 october 2016: Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology has just signed two new contracts.
The first is related to the extension of the ferry Noord-Nederland belonging to Rederij Doeksen at Damen Shiprepair Harlingen in the Netherlands. Noord-Nederland will be cut in half and a complete new section measuring 20 metres will be inserted amidships. After the extension has been completed the ‘new’ ferry will measure 65.60 metres. She will also be equipped with new propulsion, rudders and an additional bowthruster. Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology will take out, renew and reconnect the existing wiring, and deliver a new generator unit & frequency inverter and new cable conduits & fixtures.
The second contract involves the delivery of an electric system for two new trawlers: UK 150, owned by Quotter BV, and SC 10, belonging to SFB Hecht GmbH, both to be built at Nauta Hull Shipyards in Gdynia, Poland. Construction has already started on the hull of 150 UK. The trawlers were designed by Ove Kristensen from Vestvaerftet in Denmark and will measure 32 metres in length with an 8.70-metre beam. UK 150 will spend half of each year twin-rig fishing and the other half fly-shooting, while SC 10 is intended mainly for twin-rig fishing.
