Offshore logistic solutions provider Wagenborg Offshore has put into service its second walk-to-work vessel under the name Kasteelborg.
Ulstein-owned vessel named Blue Queen has been converted from a standard offshore supply vessel to this specialized walk-to-work vessel in just 12 weeks at the Royal Niestern Sander shipyard, Wagenborg said on Wednesday.
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 & Production (Shell UK).
The so-called ‘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 both Dutch and British waters.
The Kasteelborg will be deployed together with Kroonborg for the maintenance of the dozens of unmanned platforms of NAM / Shell UK. The original idea of the Kroonborg was to have all the major maintenance carried out. Read More
