The Williem Barentsz designed and developed by BMT and Strategic Marine Shipyard, is a 100% LNG-fuelled ROPAX ferry designed for the operator Rederij Doeksen in the Netherlands.
With an operating area within an UNESCO World Heritage Site (The Wadden Sea), the main focus for Rederij Doeksen led by its managing director Paul Melles was on reducing the environmental impact of the vessel operation. BMT supported this ambition and provided the technical solution to reduce NOx, CO2, and noise while increasing the efficiency of the design to achieve lower operational costs.
In order to support the increased traffic on the route between Harlingen and Terschelling, different newbuild options were considered. The medium speed aluminium catamaran platform was selected to achieve significant fuel consumption reduction compared to an equivalent monohull.
With the two designs now in operation it is a great achievement to see our design Williem Barentsz win the Shippax 'Technology and Design' award 2021.
