Projects

Some of the projects I have had the pleasure of being involved in during my career.

 

ISV “Siem Moxie”

Offshore gangway / Cable Installation Support in an Offshore Windfarm
A very high-tech vessel: Integrated MT-bridge & DP-systems, Voith-Schneider propulsion, Uptime Active-motion compensated gangway and a MacGregor 3D-motion compensated crane.
I joined the vessel while she was busy with her first project: Supporting a cablelayer with the installation & pull-in of the inter-array cables in the Amrumbank W OWF.  Together with the crew I continued to set up all administrative & maintenance systems, improve the vessel where necessary and streamline the operations while finding out the operational limits & possibilities of the vessel.

OSV “VOS Shine”

Various projects in Northern European Waters
I boarded the vessel a few months after delivery from the shipyard, spend a lot of time & effort, together with the crew, to get the vessel in a suitable working condition.
In the mean time we have been engaged in a lot of different projects: Diving, (work-class) ROV-operations, Trenching, Subsea construction, Accomodation & Passenger transfer ops and UXO-clearance. All for a wide variety of clients: Bluestream, Osiris, GdF-Suez, Boskalis Offshore, Serco Denholm, Forewind, SeaTerra & more. Most of these jobs were done on DP with an occasional one on 4-point mooring, for every project the vessel was specifically mobilised with the required client’s equipment & materials.

OSV “VOS Satisfaction”

While I was on board of the vessel she has been engaged in a wide variety of projects & operations for several clients, ie Heinrich Hirdes, Pangeo Subsea, Deep Ocean, DONG Energy, Vestas, Fluor & many more, mainly in regards to the Offshore Wind Farm Sector. Operations were either performed while vessel was on DP or anchored in a 4-point mooring spread. For every project the vessel was specifically mobilised with either Survey equipment, Diving spreads or a (work-class) ROV-spread.
