A 16-week conversion at the Netherlands-based Royal Niestern Sander shipyard gave the platform supply vessel (PSV) an extra accommodation module and a motion-compensated gangway
Wagenborg has converted a third standard PSV into a specialist DP2 vessel, aiming to use the vessel as a standby and support vessel for inspection and maintenance of undersea platforms in both British and Dutch waters in the North Sea.
The Keizersborg PSV joins walk-to-work (W2W) fleetmates Kroonborg and Kasteelborg, and is certified as an emergency response and rescue vessel (ERRV).
As an ERRV, Keizersborg can be deployed in emergency situations at platforms for rescue work, standby activities, emergency towing or patrol tasks.
"The ship is equipped with extra facilities on board, such as an infirmary, reception rooms, a decontamination room, a recovery room and extra sanitary facilities.
Keizersborg is also equipped with a daughter craft and a fast rescue boat, so that rescue activities can also be carried out in bad weather," Wagenborg said.
The 4,000-dwt PSV was originally designed by Wärtsilä and built by Wuhu Shipyard in China.
