MPI Offshore and Vroon Offshore Services recently collaborated to provide offshore services for the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm off the south coast of England. In February, wind turbine installation vessel (WTIV), MPI Discovery, and platform-supply vessel (PSV), VOS Prime, operated side by side in the wind farm and at the end of March a second PSV, VOS Prelude, was chartered to perform supply duties to MPI Discovery.
From her home port of Den Helder, VOS Prelude supplied MPI Discovery with fresh water and delivered 12 IBCs (Intermediate Bulk Containers). These cargo operations were completed in less than four hours, allowing MPI Discovery to quickly recommence her job of erecting the offshore-wind turbines. Smooth communication, efficient operations and good weather conditions resulted in another team effort well done.
The vessels are operated by two of Vroon’s Management Companies, working in close collaboration to provide added value to our customers. For almost two years, Vroon Offshore Services has been offering supply services to clients in the offshore-wind industry.
VOS Prelude is a modern, UT755-design 2010-built DP2 platform-supply vessel, with an overall length of 73.6m, a deadweight of 3,250 MT and deck space of 708 m2. The vessel is managed by Vroon Offshore Services in Den Helder.
MPI Discovery is a state-of-the-art offshore installation vessel. Designed to transport, lift, install and decommission components such as foundations, wind turbines, met masts and transformer stations, she is among the world’s most well-proven installation vessels in terms of jacking speed, deck space, lifting capacity, accommodation facilities and positioning capabilities (DP2).
