UNITED RIVERS IS VERY COMMITED TO SAFETY
Everyone is familiar with bridge collisions and their consequences. First of all, passengers often notice a collision right away. The ship stops immediately and/or (loud) noises are heard. In case of complete destruction of the wheelhouse due to the collision, the ship has to be towed to a yard for inspection. The (external) emergency services organise a rescue operation for those on board. Everyone is evacuated.
BRIDGESCOUT® ABOARD CONTAINER SHIP "POLYBOTES"
In spring 2021, we received a call from Patrick Verheyen. Verheyen is captain and co-owner of container ship “POLYBOTES”. In the past, “POLYBOTES” served as a ro-ro ship, but this spring the vessel was converted into an estuary container ship.
