General – SSV Kingsborg
Wagenborg Offshore has taken a subsea support vessel into service as Kingsborg.
Kingsborg is a custom-made and specialized offshore vessel that will support subsea activities and decommissioning works in the southern North Sea in a long-term agreement with an energy major.
After the positive experiences with the W2W vessels Kasteelborg and Keizersborg, Wagenborg has once again opted to convert a standard Platform Supply Vessel into this specialist offshore vessel.
The DP2 PX121 vessel was previously named Aurora Thunder.
In approximately 6 months’ time, Royal Niestern Sander shipyard has converted the Kingsborg by building a dedicated accommodation module, converting her in accordance with SPS-60 class and preparing the vessel for a heavy motion compensated offshore crane.
