In the last two weeks, the m.v. Warnowborg was docked at Tallinn Shipyard, Estonia. During this docking period various ‘green updates’ were made to this geared 8.600 DWCC multipurpose vessel. Thanks to a great effort of the Wagenborg crew, technical shore support and the shipyard, the Warnowborg is ready for the upcoming years of services.
Wagenborg Offshore has taken its third walk-to-work vessel (W2W) into service as Keizersborg. Keizersborg is used as a standby and support vessel for inspection and maintenance of unmanned platforms in both Dutch and British waters in the southern North Sea.
'Windpark Fryslân' has started building the wind turbines in the IJsselmeer. From March to June 2021, the 89 wind turbines will be shipped, installed and tested. This is the final phase of the construction project and an important milestone for the wind farm. During this phase, Wagenborg will take care of the transport of the blades and tower sections with various tugs and pontoons.
Currently, the BLRT Repair Yard in Tallinn is having four of our MPP vessels for regular maintenance: Adriaticborg, Exeborg, Wislaborg and Fraserborg. In addition, in three of these vessels, a ballast water treatment system will be installed.
Recently, a so-called Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) system was installed in the oldest Wagenborg tugboat 'Waterpoort' - built in 1962 and equipped with an old Stork Werkspoor engine. With this catalytic converter behind the engine, exhaust gases are treated, so that nitrogen (NOx) is captured.
