Eekels | TBI congratulates Wagenborg Shipping with the KVNR Shipping Award 2017!

On Monday night 6 November, the winners of the prestigious Dutch Maritime Awards 2017 have been named at the Maritime Awards Gala in Rotterdam.

Wagenborg Shipping has won the KVNR Shipping Award 2017 with its versatile, innovative and ‘green’ cargo ship Egbert Wagenborg. This new EasyMax type ship is easy to operate, with maximum performance. Wagenborg Shipping has stripped its innovative EasyMax of all non-essential elements in the design.

Eekels has made an significant contribution to this winning vessel. Eekels has designed and delivered the complete electrical installation. In collaboration with Alphatron, the bridge control panel has been specifically designed and built for Wagenborg in the Eekels workshop. In addition to well-thought-out functionality and user-friendliness, much attention has been paid to the esthetics of the bridge control panel. The design control panel is to be used in various types of vessel in Northern Netherlands.

The MS Egbert Wagenborg is provided with the most advanced and state-of-the-art version of the Eekels Marine Automation System. This system is directly linked to the network, making it accessible from many places onboard and from shore.
