Shell UK contracts converted walk-to-work vessel


The second walk-to-work ship of Wagenborg Offshore has been put into service under the name Kasteelborg.

Converted from a standard offshore supply vessel to a specialised walk-to-work vessel in just 12 weeks at the Royal Niestern Sander shipyard, Kasteelborg will support the offshore activities on the southern North Sea under a six-year contract with the Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij (NAM) and Shell UK Exploration and Production.

The walk-to-work emergency response and rescue vessel (W2W ERRV) will act as a standby and support vessel for inspection and maintenance of the unmanned platforms in Dutch and British waters.

Kasteelborg will be deployed with ​Kroonborg for the maintenance of the dozens of unmanned platforms.
