Second successful conversion project Walk to Work vessel

Shipyard Royal Niestern Sander has successfully completed her second conversion project for a walk-to-work vessel (W2W). Delivered to Wagenborg as Keizersborg, this vessel will be 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.

Conversion in 16 weeks

After the positive experiences with the W2W vessel Kasteelborg, Wagenborg has once again opted to convert a standard Platform Supply Vessel into this specialist offshore vessel. The DP2 vessel was designed by Wärtsilä and built by Wuhu Shipyard in China. Keizersborg was converted in 16 weeks by the Royal Niestern Sander shipyard and provided with an extra accommodation module, a motion compensated gangway and a retractable bow thruster.

Conversion specialist

Ship conversion is a very specialized line of work that Royal Niestern Sander has made its own. Royal Niestern Sander has a large portfolio of very diverse and complex ship conversions. Think of the renewal of old ships, the redesign of existing ships or the conversion to new technical and functional requirements. Here the customer question comes first. A customer-specific design is created. Then the engineering takes place. Customization as it should be.
