Revolutionary green ferry “Texelstroom” even greener

Texel, the perfect island for a holiday, a weekend away or just a day to spend on the beach.

Monarch Empress starts with durable water treatment

Being eco-friendly is getting more and more important. Entrepreneurs that join the ‘go green’ trend are greatly appreciated these days. Although appreciation is meaningful, it is also important for entrepreneurs that environment-friendly, alternative products are reliable and cost efficient. The company River Advice started to make her Avalon fleet environment-friendly a few years ago. The Avalon Scenery was the first ship to use the MERUS water treatment technology, which was installed in 2012. It was the beginning of a beautiful cooperation between River Advice and Pronomar. Nowadays, a lot of Avalon ships have the MERUS rings on board and recently the Monarch Empress followed as well. The Monarch Empress is a luxurious river cruise ship which can accommodate 144 passengers.
