Videos Walk to Work

There is a lot to be written about our Walk to Work vessel. But why not show you our vessel and all her innovative key features? Above you can take your time and enjoy our 45 minute documentary of our Walk to Work vessel. Not that much time? You can also watch the short videos about the key elements in the vessels design.

Motion compensated offshore crane

 

Safe lifting operations are guaranteed with a three-dimensional neutral and heave compensated hook with a minimal footprint on deck. Roll, pitch and heave motions are compensated with vertically mounted cylinders, which are placed between the vessel and the crane. The lifting capacity is 20 ton @10 m / 2 ton @32,5m (DAF1.25).

Motion compensated gangway system

 

A fully integrated access system will be used
to transfer people from the vessel to offshore
structures and to transfer small cargoes or
equipment. The system compensates the
motion of the waves up to 2.5 m.

Deck space and work area

 

The vessel is designed with a huge deck space
of 500 m2 for maintenance equipment. Next to the deck area workshop and starage facilities are present.



GTL fuel

 

Safe lifting operations are guaranteed with a three-dimensional neutral and heave compensated hook with a minimal footprint on deck. Roll, pitch and heave motions are compensated with vertically mounted cylinders, which are placed between the vessel and the crane. The lifting capacity is 20 ton @10 m / 2 ton @32,5m (DAF1.25).

Cold Start Up and chemical supply

 

The vessel will be certified and equipped with a below-deck tank installation for transporting and bunkering 6 different chemicals. The vessel is equipped with a Cold Start-Up installation for well stimulation.

Daughter craft

 

The daughter craft of the W2W vessel is designed for standby duties. The rescue boat is fully compliant with SOLAS UK and Dutch continental shelf regulations.



Accommodation facilities

 

Safe lifting operations are guaranteed with a three-dimensional neutral and heave compensated hook with a minimal footprint on deck. Roll, pitch and heave motions are compensated with vertically mounted cylinders, which are placed between the vessel and the crane. The lifting capacity is 20 ton @10 m / 2 ton @32,5m (DAF1.25).

Design and construction

 

The Walk to Work vessel is a joint production of Royal Wagenborg as a shipping company and Royal Niestern Sander as a shipbuilder. Discover how the knowledge and experiences of these two Dutch companies inspired the design of the Walk to Work vessel. 

An overview

 

The walk to Work vessel is a new type of offshore Maintenance support vessel, designed to provide the offshore industry with multifunctional support. A combination of many functions results in a vessel the world has never seen before.


 

Discover the vessels concept and design principles



Workability

The Walk to Work vessel is designed and optimised for efficient offshore operations. The unique combination of design and functions makes the Walk to Work vessel unmatched in efficiency year round.

Comfort

The Walk to Work vessel is developed for technicians who are not used to sailing. A proven hull shape, special propulsion system and comfortable facilities on board result in a high welfare standard.

Stepless approach

The layout of the vessel has been completely adapted to the workflow of technicians and cargo. An unimpeded flow  guarantees safe movements of materials and personnel.

Safety & sustainability

The Walk to Work vessel is developed for safe and sustainable offshore operations using multiple motion compensated elements and autonomous crafts.
