Vroon Supports Total’s Maintenance Campaign in Dutch North Sea
Vroon has secured work for its subsea-support walk-to-work vessel, VOS Start, with Total E&P Nederland (TEPNL) in the North Sea.
The vessel delivers offshore logistics support for a 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 client personnel, VOS Start was designed to allow optimal people and cargo workflow between main deck, accommodation areas and the offshore asset.
During the first seven days of operations with TEPNL, VOS Start completed 34 gangway connections, transferring a total 185 client personnel, the company noted.
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 offshore-renewable client.
VOS Start is A purpose built vessel to support offshore operations and walk-to-work projects in renewable energy and oil & gas industries.
