GALLERY: Damen wraps up final outfitting job on ‘VOS Stone’

Damen Shiprepair 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 completed in July this year at Oranjewerf, involving sister ship VOS Start.

Damen said on Thursday that the eight-week program for VOS Stone involved a wide range of activities, including the 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.

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

Jeen van der Werf, commercial manager at Oranjewerf, said: “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.”

Vroon’s newbuilding department added: “It was a pleasure to be back with our number-five vessel, VOS Stone, for completion before entering the market. This yard has again reached a high standard when it comes to timely and efficient cooperation between owner and yard.”

VOS Stone has been purpose-built to support offshore operations in the renewable industry and walk-to-work projects in the oil and gas industry.

The vessel has already been awarded a contract by VBMS, a subsidiary of Royal Boskalis to support inter-array cabling operations at the Arkona Offshore Windfarm, located in the Baltic Sea off the coast of Germany.

In the summer of 2018, the vessel will undertake operations for E.ON, working on commissioning of the wind turbines at the same windfarm.
