ICees has entered into two contracts for the design and building of two complete TV
Entertainment Systems for two new build Trailing Hopper Dredgers of 17,000 m³ for
the Dutch company Van Oord, located in Rotterdam.
These dredgers will be fitted with two big RaDomes, one on each side to eliminate a
dead viewing angle due to the mast and other equipment and also give a redundancy
to the system. We’ve also added the possibility to receive a different satellite on each
RaDome so foreign country crew or clients can watch their own HD programs.
The system is completely ready for WorldWide Reception as Van Oord Works around
The Multi Media Onboard Entertainment Systems contains two VOD Servers with a
capacity of 12 TB each so all the Family movies of the crew can be uploaded from
their own rooms. Also a Sound System will be integrated in all rooms and of course
at least a 28″ Hotel TV with Digital HD Quality.
