Wagenborg puts into service its second walk-to-work vessel

8 March 2018

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
