Gelderland’s Rivierengebied—or river region—offers beautiful river views and is full of fruit trees. It is a wonderful location for outdoor recreational activities. Recreation company Uit®waarde is engaged in the sustainable preservation of the Rivierengebied.
Uit®waarde is making its entire ferry fleet sustainable. The sustainability programme began with the ferry across the Rhine between Heteren and Renkum. Huisman Etech Experts was asked to develop a fully electric control and drive system design.
We worked with MARIN (Maritime Research Institute Netherlands) and Van Oossanen Naval Architects to design Uit®waarde’s first electrically powered foot ferry. Made to measure! We analysed all ferry lines thoroughly to offer a single electrical solution for all of them. Using the same technology everywhere keeps the electric ferries are maintenance-friendly and cost-efficient. The Huisman Diagnostic System ensures ease of operation and smooth sailing.
