Check out this video, a promotional film introducing Vroon’s newbuild subsea-support vessels VOS Start and VOS Stone.

These walk-to-work vessels combine a sheltered spacious warehouse, workshops and client offices and meeting rooms, ideal to prepare for day-to-day work on offshore installations.

To enable clients to safely access offshore-wind turbines and platforms, the vessels are fitted with a full motion-compensated gangway system. A 50-ton subsea crane with motion-compensated tip is installed to lift cargo, for example to wind turbines and support subsea work.

Special attention is paid to the workflow on board these vessels, aimed at ensuring the most efficient way of working.

On returning to the vessel after a day’s work, clients can relax in the on-board cinema, spend time in the dayrooms or work out in the gym, all in hotel-type comfort. The vessel accommodates up to 60 clients.

Both vessels are being built at Fujian Southeast Shipyard, China and are due for delivery early next year, well in time for the 2017 subsea season.
