VOS Start to support commissioning for MHI Vestas at 450MW project
Vroon Offshore Services vessel VOS Start is being chartered by MHI Vestas Offshore Wind to support the commissioning phase of the 450MW Borkum Riffgrund 2 wind farm in the German North Sea.
The project, which is expected to be commissioned in 2019, will comprise 56 V164-8.0MW turbines.
Vroon said the award underlines the strength of the relationship between the company and MHI Vestas.
The two companies worked on commissioning of 40 V164-8.0MW turbines at the Walney 3 offshore wind farm off the coast of Cumbria in the UK.
The VOS Start is a subsea-support walk-to-work vessel fitted with a Barge Master motion-compensated gangway system and an active heave-compensated crane.
