Bolidt Synthetic Products & Systems has secured the contract as exclusive partner to Viking Ocean Cruises for the supply of decking and flooring. The contract covers Viking Star, the first vessel due for delivery in 2015 and its sister ship, Viking Sky, scheduled for delivery in 2016, as well as options on a further two vessels.
In July, Bolidt’s Bolimix machine will come into action on the Galecopper Bridge. As part of the renovation of this second busiest road bridge in the Netherlands, Bolidt will be responsible for the application of both the durable surface course and the adhesive layer between the steel deck and the High Strength Concrete (HSC). Bolidt has previously worked on such bridges as the Hagestein Bridge, the Hollandse Bridge, the Muider Bridge, the Beek Arch Bridge and the Moerdijk Bridge.
The first week of May Bolidt launched their new interactive magazine. The Bolidt Magazine is to become a lifestyle magazine. The new format, under the name “By Bolidt”, will be published twice a year, featuring topics dedicated to architecture, design and creativity.
Bolidt Synthetic Products & Systems has booked orders for its decking solutions covering newbuildings for some of the highest profile cruise ship operators in the industry that include vessel deliveries envisaged in five years’ time.
