Alewijnse performs mid-life electronic refit for Dutch support ship

26th May 2020 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Alewijnse Marine is performing a comprehensive mid-life electronic refit of the Royal Netherlands Navy logistic support ship HNLMS Pelikaan (pictured).

The contract was awarded in August 2019, with work commencing in early 2020 at Damen Shipyards in Den Helder.

Pelikaan almost exclusively operates in the Caribbean, where it supports maritime security operations and provides humanitarian assistance as required.

Alewijnse Marine is servicing a range of electronic equipment onboard and it will install a new telephone, radar, CCTV and alarm and monitoring system (AMS).

Jan-Dirk Boomsma, project manager at Damen Shipyards Den Helder, said: ‘The company has extensive experience with Pelikaan in particular and with naval vessels in general.’

He added: ‘This experience can be clearly seen in the high efficiency of the performance on this project. The co-operation is very good and the teamwork enables us to keep things on track whilst observing the important [COVID-19] safety measures we currently have in place.’
