Recently, the construction of Fryslân Wind Farm on the water started with the installation of the first of the 89 foundation piles into the bottom of the IJsselmeer. Wagenborg is closely involved in this important milestone with its floating crane ‘Triton’.
After a tender procedure, shipyard Royal Niestern Sander, Wagenborg Offshore and a joint-venture between Mercury Sakhalin and Pola have signed an agreement for the construction of the world’s first shallow draft ice-breaking walk to work vessel. After delivery in December 2021, Mercury Sakhalin will operate this vessel on the East Coast of Sakhalin for the oil and gas industry.
Winter is coming. And that remains special for us every year. Where nature around us keeps hibernation and waits for the days to get longer, we continue to sail through large ice plains with our ice-strengthened ships.

With a continuous focus on safety, innovation and sustainability, Wagenborg maintains her reputation as the multipurpose short sea shipping company.
