zoom The Netherlands Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, Rijkswaterstaat (RWS), has chosen Kongsberg Norcontrol IT to deliver a state-of-the-art RADAR surveillance system for the Volkeraksluizen, Europe’s largest and busiest inland lock complex.Volkeraksluizen serves as an essential junction in the waterway connection between the ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp. It is not only Europe’s largest and busiest inland locks but also the world’s largest inland locks, with over 240 million tons passing through each year.“Volkeraksluizen is a vital link in the Netherlands waterways,” says Wiebe Schmitz, KNC Sales Manager, Netherlands. “Rapid processing of the traffic picture and reliable tracking are essential for the logistical chain between Rotterdam and Antwerp, as well as for managing the flow of traffic.”The system will use Kongsberg’s next generation C-Scope System to monitor vessel traffic in and around the Volkeraksluizen and to pilot ships into the locks. RADAR data will be integrated with the national AIS network for operators to maintain a clear, accurate, and reliable traffic picture.“We are very proud that Rijkswaterstaat has chosen Kongsberg Norcontrol IT to deliver this very important system,” says Schmitz, ”and we are eager to bring our expertise to the inland waterways of the Netherlands.”Delivery is scheduled for 2014.
