Haelvoet furniture at sea!

Haelvoet supplied hydraulic beds and stretchers to the mobile hospital of the JSS Karel Doorman, the largest ship under the flag of the Royal Netherlands Navy.

The beds and stretchers have been equipped with specific fasteners, so that they can be both attached to the floor and loosened. Thanks to this, the stretchers are highly manoeuvrable. Our hydraulic high/low products increase the mobility and usability of the material.

More information about the project can be found here .

JSS Karel Doorman has been in the news very recently. The Dutch naval ship was loaded with material to combat the Ebola virus in West Africa. Part of the load will be unloaded this Wednesday in the harbour of Freetown. The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced on Twitter that the ship will continue its journey to Guinea and Liberia later this week.
