VBMS has awarded Vroon’s subsea-support walk-to-work vessel VOS Stone a contract to support inter-array cabling operations at the 385MW Arkona offshore wind farm from spring 2018.

Recently, E.ON awarded VOS Stone a contract for logistics support and offshore accommodation at Arkona starting from summer 2018.

The vessel was delivered by Fujian Southeast Shipbuilding of China in July and is currently undergoing final outfitting works in the Netherlands, in readiness for North Sea operations from November 2017.

E.ON and Statoil are building the EUR 1.2 billion Arkona wind farm some 35 kilometres northeast of the Rügen Island. E.ON is responsible for the construction and subsequent operation of the wind farm.

Arkona will comprise 60 Siemens 6MW turbines scheduled for commissioning in 2019.

VOS Stone is a sister vessel of VOS Start, currently employed at DONG Energy’s Walney Extension offshore wind farm in the Irish Sea. Like her sister, VOS Stone has been fitted with a motion-compensated offshore gangway and a 50T active-heave-compensated crane. She can provide accommodation for 60 client personnel.
