Port of Rotterdam: Floating Swimming Pool For The Port

Last week Eerland Shiprepair Rotterdam delivered a floating swimming pool at the Heysehaven dock.

The floating training center of KNRM is equipped with a complete swim water filtration unit which has all the facilities, such as climbing net, rope ladder and heli hoist, for the training of specific groups within the maritime and offshore industry.

Waves of over 1 meter high can be generated and wind, rain and darkness can be created.

Additionally, a practice helicopter is installed from which HUET escape training under water can be exercised. The pool will be used by STC-KNRM for safety- and survival training and will be put into use end of this month.
