MS "Reestborg" is launched on 25 January 2013. This 23,000-ton multi-purpose ship, with a length of 170 metres and a breadth of 20.40 metres, is the biggest ship ever built by Ferus Smit shipyard in Leer. It is the first vessel in a series of three featuring the “eco-bow”. This, coupled with a low engine capacity, makes them more environmentally friendly.

On 11 July 2013 a contract is signed with the Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij B.V. for the building and operating of what is known as a "Walk to Work" vessel.


The Wagenborg Walk to Work vessel will play a crucial role in the maintenance and servicing of production platforms in the North Sea, ensuring safe, efficient, productive and cost-effective operations at offshore locations.
