VOS Patriot will provide noise mitigation assistance at the wind farm for charterers Seaway Heavy Lifting (SHL) over the period of 70 days, with the possibility of extending the options once the works are done.

The new vessel, delivered to Vroon last month, is the last in a series of six PX-121-type PSVs built at Cosco Guangdong Shipyard in China.

In 2016, SHL won a contract for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of the foundations for Trianel Windpark Borkum II.

Located 45km off the island of Borkum, the 203MW offshore wind farm will comprise 32 Senvion 6.2M152 turbines expected to be fully commissioned in 2019.

The project is being developed as the second stage of the Trianel Windpark Borkum offshore wind farm, which has been operational since 2015.
