The Netherlands: Offshore Wenduine Converts into Multi-Purpose Catamaran Work Boat
Offshore Wenduine (0W3) has been converted into a multi-purpose Catamaran Work Boat and been finalized end of April by shipyard Den Breejen under the supervision of Workships Contractors B.V. Her first job was to assist in the testing of the Amplemann L-type access system. Also, the manoeuvrability of the ship in the area of the landing point was successfully assessed.
OW3 is MCA Classed and has been inspected by Eelsing for Prinses Amalia Windfarm without issues. Her relatively large deck space gives room for bulky equipment and the RG Seasight fender is one of the best performing ones on the market.
Other features which make her ideal for diving and survey works include: tracks allowing easy fitting of project specific equipment; survey desk with two seats; 19inch rack for survey equipment; large storage space and lockers; separate crew mess; all seats are KPM DNV-classed suspension seats and each has a table tray with power sockets, USB charger and day & night lights.
OW3 is owned by Offshore Wind Services B.V. and managed by Workships Contractors B.V., a company with its headquarters in Rotterdam. She is one of their ten crew transfer vessels of the offshore wind fleet.
