Completion of the ferry "Norderaue" in Rostock
After more than one year, the double-ended ferry M/S "Norderaue" was delivered to the Wyker Dampfschiffs-Reederei Föhr-Amrum GmbH (W.D.R.), so that the baptism could take place in June in the harbor of Wyk on the island Föhr. The almost 76 meters long and 17 meters wide newbuild was built at the shipyard Neptun in Rostock, Germany, and is replacing the 1992 built "Rungholt" on the Föhr-Amrum route.
R&M in Wismar was assigned with the interior outfitting of the crew areas, public areas and on the bridge of the new ferry. The contract included the planning, production, delivery and assembly of all furniture and floor coverings, all handrails and railings in the interior, automatic sliding glass doors, the locking system and various fitting and cladding works. The colleagues from Rostock supplied the wall and ceiling systems including B15 doors and inspection flaps and was responsible for the production, delivery and installation of floating floors on deck 1 and the bridge deck.
The "Norderaue" has a high level of comfort on board for the 1,200 passengers. In addition, the ferry is equipped with Voith Schneider propellers, which makes it more environmentally friendly for the World Heritage site Wadden Sea, because it uses significantly less fuel than the "Rungholt". Another advantage of the "Norderaue": it is the first ferry with four lanes for trucks, which can ensure the supply of the islands even better.
