Marvel at the newest and third ship in the Quantum Class, Ovation of the Seas. Featuring the same groundbreaking venues as its sister ships, Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas, this ship is continuing to take cruisers to new heights.
Ovation of the Seas benefits from an extensive range of Bolidt products, including Bolideck Future Teak, Bolideck Select Soft and Bolideck Select Hard.
Eddie Djemel, chief officer of the Ovation of the Seas, takes care of the maintenance. He worked from the beginning with Bolidt on this ship. "The cooperation with Bolidt was excellent", says Eddie Djemel.
The new residence of the KWR Watercycle Research Institute in Nieuwegein has received recognition for its sustainable design by architectural practice cepezed. The building, which features Bolidtop 525 flooring systems, was nominated for the ARC Architecture Award and even named winner in the category ‘stimulating environments’ of BNA Best Building of the Netherlands.
River cruising has been one of the fastest growing sectors of the passenger shipping industry in Europe over the past five years. The specialist fleet of river-going cruise ships has increased accordingly.
A number of leading operators have found that Bolideck Future Teak, a light weight and environmentally-sustainable synthetic alternative to real teak, gives their vessels the high quality look and feel that sets them apart. One of these is Rostock-based A-Rosa Cruises, which operates a fleet of 15 ships on the Rivers Danube, Rhône, Saône, Rhine, Maine and Mosel, and which has achieved considerable success in the premium, high-end river cruise segment.
Dirk Sobotka, A-Rosa Director, Strategic Development, says: “Bolideck Future Teak is an important feature of our ships, both for our guests and for us as an operator. Bolidt is an extremely innovative, customer focused company with a superior product range.”
The latest addition to the Holland American Line is MS Koningsdam, built by Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri. The 99,500 tonne vessel accommodates 2,650 guests. Bolidt added to the glamour of this ship by providing its innovative Bolideck Future Teak for the exterior decking. A part of the decking is in the traditional colour, another in a stately grey as requested by the design agency Yran & Storbraaten.

After having installed its innovative marine decking systems on the Oasis of the Seas and the Allure of the Seas, Bolidt was also contracted to supply the decking for the Harmony of the Seas. With its length of 362 metres, 16 guest decks and a gross tonnage of 226.000, the Harmony of the Seas is the largest cruise ship in the world and the third in Royal Caribbean’s Oasis class. The ship was built at STX France’s Saint-Nazaire shipyard in western France.
The state-of-the-art new building for the Faculty of Applied Sciences (TNW) on the Delft University of Technology campus has been provided with Bolidtop® flooring systems. Designed by Ector Hoogstad Architects, the teaching and research building has 30,000 square metres of floor surface and besides lecture rooms, mainly consists of laboratories for the Bionanotechnology, Chemical Technology and Biotechnology departments. These departments enjoy an excellent reputation and engage in high-quality research in the fields of Bionanoscience, Biotechnology, Chemical Engineering, Imaging Physics, Quantum Nanoscience and Radiation Science & Technology.
The MY Maryah was delivered in 2015 and is a self-supporting super yacht suitable for 54 passengers to comfortably sail around the world on. A significant contribution to the MY Maryah was made by Steve Gresham of Gresham Yacht Design. Steve was asked by H2 Yacht Design to provide the exterior design. As part of his assignment, he sought the collaboration of Bolidt.
An important element in the interior of the new school is its flooring: it must be able to stand up to rough treatment and be easy to clean. Also at the Krimpenerwaard College in Krimpen a/d IJssel.
Rutger van den Bosch, facilities manager at Krimpenerwaard College: “It is a great floor. Even with thousands of feet walking across it every day it is as good as maintenance free and easy to keep clean. Our new flooring will not need major maintenance for some time. We are also seeing an improvement in terms of hygiene in our new building".
