25 slim Newthex hatches on board zero emission propulsion Damen Ferries

The city of Copenhagen has upgraded their public transport service, making it cleaner and more sustainable. Movia issued the public tender and subsequently selected Damen as its vessel supplier. The vessels are based on Damen’s E3 philosophy – environmentally friendly, efficient in operation and economically viable.

Flush watertight hatches

As on board comfort was an important factor for Movia, Newthex designed a watertight hatch which sits flush in the floor and is convenient to walk on.

An extra slim design was necessary as a safety feature for passengers wearing high heels. All 5 vessels are equipped with 5 of these slim Newthex hatches which grant access to the maintenance areas of the vessel.
