Vroon to Assist VBMS in Arkona OWF Cabling

Vroon Offshore Services has been awarded a contract by VBMS to support inter-array cabling operations at Arkona offshore wind farm from spring 2018, utilizing its subsea-support walk-to-work unit VOS Stone.

In summer 2018, VOS Stone will engage in similar operations at the same wind farm in the context of E.ON’s commissioning operations.

VOS Stone was delivered by Fujian Southeast Shipbuilding of China in July and is currently undergoing final outfitting works in The Netherlands, in readiness for North-Sea operations from November 2017.

VOS Stone’s sister, VOS Start, is currently engaged in commissioning operations for the Walney Extension wind farm in the Irish Sea.

The Arkona OWF is located 35 kilometres northeast of the German island of Rügen. It will have a capacity of 385 megawatts generated by 60 Siemens 6MW turbines and provide electricity for up to 400,000 households in Germany from 2019.
