Vroon said on Wednesday that its subsea-support walk-to-work vessel VOS Start would deliver offshore logistics support to a planned maintenance campaign on Total’s offshore assets in the Dutch sector of the Southern North Sea.

Fitted with a 50-ton active-heave-compensated crane and able to accommodate up to 60 personnel, VOS Start was designed to allow people and cargo workflow between main deck, accommodation areas, and the offshore asset.

People, and cargo trolleys if required, can enter a lift built in the tower of a Barge Master motion-compensated gangway system, along which the gangway slides vertically between 9 and 27 metres on the sea level, maintaining a horizontal position when landing at any height between 14.5 and 22 metres.

The company added that VOS Start completed 34 gangway connections, transferring a total of 185 client personnel, during the first seven days of operations.

At the beginning of April, VOS Start will sail to the Irish Sea where it will engage in similar walk-to-work operations for an unnamed offshore-renewable client.
