Second Vroon W2W vessel completes modifications at Damen

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

VOS Stone was built at Fujian Southeast Shipbuilding in China before coming to the Netherlands for completion. This follows a similar project successfully completed in July this year at Oranjewerf, involving sister ship VOS Start.

The eight-week programme for VOS Stone involved a wide range of activities, including 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).

“We were very pleased to welcome VOS Stone following the very positive experience with VOS Start,” said Jeen van der Werf, Commercial Manager at Damen Shiprepair Oranjewerf. “Based on the experiences gained from VOS Start, and working with the same expert in-house team and group of sub-contractors, the target completion date was achieved with no compromises to our very high standards.”

Damen, and Damen Shiprepair Oranjewerf in particular, has a strong and long-standing relationship with the Vroon Group.

The yard offers a skilled and experienced workforce, operating from excellent facilities that include a 135m floating dock.

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