Holland America Line contracts Imtech to refit ships

ms Westerdam ms Westerdam

Holland America Line has commissioned Imtech Marine USA to refit the bridges of three Holland America Line cruise ships – ms Westerdam, ms Noordam, and ms Oosterdam.

The equipment included in the deal includes FCR-28x9 X-band radars, FAR-2837 S-band radars, FMD 3300 ECDIS, FAP 2000/3000 Track control and GP150D GPS systems, all Furuno equipment. Imtech Marine represents Furuno in the United States.

Imtech Marine will provide engineering, installation, training, and service for this series of refits, with the first of the three ships to be refit during a 10-day dry dock period in April of 2014.

"We have been a partner with Holland America Line for a number of years, delivering service and spare parts or equipment whenever necessary for their cruise ships," said Eric Clarke, managing director of Imtech Marine USA.

"We are delighted that we are now invited to install new bridge systems on board of three of their famous cruise ships. Furuno has been selected for its robust design and flexibility, specifically the interconnecting qualities, as well as being known as reliable, solid equipment."

"We see a trend in the industry, showing an increased need for flexibility and redundancies. Prime focus in this respect is of course safety. With our worldwide service network and remote monitoring facilities, we focus on helping ship owners achieve uninterrupted, safe operations."
