Vroon’s Subsea Support W2W Vessel Goes on Offshore Wind Job

E.ON has contracted VOS Stone for logistics support and offshore accommodation at the Arkona offshore wind farm in Germany.

VOS Stone was delivered to Vroon by Fujian Southeast Shipbuilding, China in July 2017. The vessel will undergo final outfitting works in the Netherlands and be ready to start operations in the North Sea from November 2017.

The vessel is a subsea-support walk-to-work vessel and sister vessel of VOS Start, currently employed at the Walney Extension offshore wind farm in the Irish Sea. Both vessels have been purpose built to support offshore operations in today’s renewable industry and walk-to-work projects in the oil & gas industry.

Like its sister, VOS Stone will be fitted with a motion-compensated offshore gangway and a 50T active-heave-compensated crane. She can provide accommodation for 60 client personne. Featuring a covered warehouse on the main-deck level, the vessel has the versatility to perform cargo handling and passenger transfers to and from offshore assets, such as wind turbines, offshore platforms or CTVs (crew-transfer vessels), as well as engage in subsea-support operations.

VOS Stone will begin its charter for E.ON in mid-2018.
