Imtech Marine to Refit Bridges on Three Holland America Line Cruise Ships

Holland America Line commissioned Imtech Marine USA to refit the bridges of three Holland America Line cruise ships – ms Westerdam, ms Noordam, and ms Oosterdam. The equipment consists of FCR-28×9 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. Holland America Line has partnered with Imtech Marine on this series of refits to provide engineering, installation, training, and service through Imtech’s worldwide service network. The first of the three ships will be refit during a 10-day dry dock period in April of 2014.

Eric Clarke, Managing Director of Imtech Marine USA, says: “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. 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.
