Vroon W2W vessel ready for work after outfitting

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

Following the path of sister ship VOS Start in July, VOS Stone was built at Fujian Southeast Shipbuilding in China before being completed in the Netherlands.

The eight-week program included installation of a 50-tonne active heave-compensated, knuckle-boom crane, 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 has been awarded 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 the year.

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