Order Build NIOZ


After a careful tendering process, the NWO-I Foundation Board awarded the construction
of Research Vessel Wim Wolff to Thecla Bodewes Shipyards. This research vessel replaces
the RV Navicula and is the first new vessel in the national research fleet. The vessels are
managed by the National Marine Facilities (NMF) at the Royal Netherlands Institute for
Sea Research (NIOZ).
