Additional information:

NET-036 is in 2006 registered by the ARLHS as Emmeloord H. There is no further information available, except that it is classified as “historic”. No physical evidence left on the location can give a clue what was intended by this entry. 

Here is an interpretation concerning NET-036:

“Emmeloord” in the context of lighthouses refers to what is better known as “Old-Emmeloord” a settlement on the northern tip of Schokland island. The island is now landlocked and the modern town of Emmeloord (established in 1943 and named after the former settlement) is just a couple of km away from Schokland.

Old-Emmeloord on former Schokland island had a harbour. At least since 1889 the harbour had a 3,5 m wooden tripod with a light range of 4 nm. The harbour entrance had two lanterns on poles as well. NET-036 might refer to these wooden structures. The wooden tripod is replaced by an iron structure in 1908. Later the iron structure is also dismantled and replaced by a replica NET-205.
