Fossil energy – emergency vessel
Wagenborg Offshore has signed an agreement for the deployment of a walk to work emergency response and rescue vessel (W2W ERRV).
This fourth walk to work vessel in the Wagenborg fleet will be operated by Wagenborg Offshore as a standby and support vessel for inspection and maintenance of unmanned platforms in the southern North Sea.
An existing PX121 platform supply ship – currently named ‘Hermit Viking’ – will be converted into the walk to work vessel within 20 weeks at shipyard Royal Niestern Sander in Delfzijl.
The Hermit Viking will be equipped with an additional accommodation module for 40 people. Also a motion compensated gangway will be installed to comply with all requirements.
Early Q2 2022, the ship will be christened and the name will be revealed, after which it will be set to work in the Southern North Sea.
