Schichau Delivers

Car/Rail Passenger

Ferry 'Robin Hood'

The car/rail passenger ferry Ro- bin Hood was recently delivered to

Hamburg-based TT-Line GmbH &

Co. by Schichau Seebeckwerft of

Bremerhaven, West Germany. The vessel immediately joined her sister ship Nils Dacke in serving the line's

Lubeck-Travemunde to Trelleborg route. The Nils Dacke has been employed on this route since Octo- ber 1988.

According to TT-Line, which with its Swedish partner Swedcar- rier operates the service from Lu- beck, West Germany, to Trelleborg,

Sweden, the 24,728-ton Robin Hood and sister vessel Nils Dacke are among the largest vessels of their kind. They are equipped with tracks on the lower deck to handle com- plete cargo trains. The rail facilities can also be used to accommodate truck/trailer units.

Like the Nils Dacke, the Robin

Hood has an approximate length of 581 feet and a width of 84.5 feet.

Both offer three decks intercon- nected by internal ramps, and have accommodations for up to 300 pas- sengers: 280 beds in a total of 121 cabins, all with shower and toilet facilities; video-cinema; conference room; lounge; and self-service res- taurant.

No ship is too small... to install an EVAC vacuum toilet system.

If you need an economical and reliable toilet system for your ship (50 feet or longer), choose EVAC. EVAC has two standard models:

Model 0111 — allows you to utilize your ship's hull tank, and;

Model 1111 — includes our atmospheric holding tank.

Both models have the same standard design and components; therefore, you do not pay for special design engineering. You do receive high quality components with a proven history of reliability.

EVAC vacuum toilet systems already exist in over 2,000 ships worldwide. Model 0111 and Model 1111, with one or two pumps, are avail- able from stock to ex- pedite delivery.

Benefits for both models: overboard discharge recirculating pump
