Wagenborg Offshore has signed a long-term agreement with an energy major for the deployment of a multipurpose offshore vessel.

The latest addition to the Wagenborg offshore fleet is a custom-made and specialized offshore vessel that will support subsea activities and decommissioning works in the Southern North Sea.

An existing young PX121 platform supply vessel will be converted into a multipurpose offshore vessel within 34 weeks at the shipyard Royal Niestern Sander in Delfzijl.

During this period, dozens of local employees will work on the innovative conversion of the ship, which will give a boost to local employment.

The vessel will be equipped with an additional accommodation module for 20 people, and an active heave compensated crane will be installed to comply with all customer requirements.

The ship will also have an Emergency Response and Rescue Vessel (ERRV) class C notation enabling the vessel to perform emergency response and rescue duties.

By the end of Q2 2023 the vessel will be christened and the name will be revealed, after which it will start operating on the Southern North Sea.
