Rhenus Offshore Logistics, Vroon Back Gemini Corrosion Protection Campaign

OrbisEnergy tenant Rhenus Offshore Logistics, Vroon Back Gemini Corrosion Protection Campaign | Offshore Wind  

Rhenus Offshore Logistics B.V. took over the overall logistics concept for personnel and materials for a corrosion protection campaign at two platforms – Buitengaats and ZeeEnergie – at the Gemini offshore wind farm, where the company worked together with Vroon Offshore Services.

Vroon’s multi-functional platform supply vessel VOS Prime, equipped with a special Ampelmann gangway, was used for the campaign at the Gemini wind farm. The vessel provided work and residential space for the project team consisting of 40 people as well as 20 crew members, eliminating the need to transport the employees from the base port of Eemshaven and back every day.

A total of 934 trips were completed between the vessel and the substations, supported with additional supply and transport vessels.

Rhenus Offshore Logistics B.V., the recently set up Dutch co-subsidiary of the German Rhenus Offshore Logistics, used a crew transport vessel to travel between the base port and the platform supply ship when there was a change of shift. Rhenus and Vroon provided supplies of fairly large amounts of food, drinks, tools and the rubbish disposal services using the VOS Prelude platform supply vessel based in Emden.

“We’re delighted by the successful course of the first project that was handled by our new Dutch branch,” said Thore Schreiber, Head of Business Development & Sales at Rhenus Offshore Logistics.

Vroon and Rhenus have been increasing their cooperation since May last year, according to Rhenus Offshore Logistics. “The first project went very well. While Rhenus handled the central management of the project, Vroon was a reliable and committed partner at our side,” said Jannik Hartfil, Business Development Manager at Rhenus Offshore Logistics Niederlande, who supervised the project.
