PHOTO: Damen Wraps Up Outfitting of Subsea W2W Vessel VOS Stone

Damen Shiprepair Oranjewerf (Oranjewerf) has completed final outfitting and modifications on a second subsea-support walk-to-work (W2W) vessel VOS Stone for Vroon Offshore Services.

VOS Stone was built at Fujian Southeast Shipbuilding in China before coming to the Netherlands for completion.

The eight-week programme for VOS Stone involved installation of a 50-tonne active heave-compensated, knuckle-boom crane, along with taut-wire, RadaScan, and Hipap from Kongsberg for the vessel-positioning system, a boat landing and system for fuelling crew-transfer vessels (CTV).

VOS Stone is the fifth new vessel that Vroon has entrusted to Oranjewerf for final outfitting after construction in China, Damen noted.

VOS Stone has been purpose-built to support offshore operations in the renewable industry and walk-to-work projects in the oil & gas industry.

The vessel has already secured a contract by VBMS, a subsidiary of Royal Boskalis, to support inter-array cabling operations at the Arkona offshore wind farm, located in the Baltic Sea off the coast of Germany, during the first half of next year.

In summer 2018, the vessel will undertake operations for EON, working on commissioning of the wind turbines at the same wind farm.
