C-Job Naval Architects developed the design of ro-ro ferry ‘Texelstroom’ in collaboration with her owner TESO.

The ‘Texelstroom’ is a double-ended ferry operating between the Dutch island Texel and Den Helder. C-Job created the initial, concept, and basic design together with her owner TESO. During the construction of the vessel, C-Job also supported TESO with building supervision at the shipyard.

The ro-ro ferry has a capacity of 1,750 passengers as well as 380 cars or 34 trucks and 261 cars. The vessel features innovative solutions such as a T-shaped beam to increase capacity, CNG/diesel hybrid propulsion, ‘peak shaving’ batteries, and solar panels across the top deck.
