Wind-force 6 and waves of up to 2 metres: weather conditions in which maintenance using ‘Crew Transfer Vessels’ is impossible but a perfect day for demonstrating Kroonborg’s capacities. In less than an hour from the port of IJmuiden, Kroonborg arrives in OWEZ then, making use of DP, the vessel is positioned at turbine 34, subsequently three people are crossing the gangway without any problems. The guests witnessing this are very impressed. “During my time as project manager for Kroonborg I already knew what this ship is capable of, but after this splendid day, many more people will be enthusiastic about this concept”, concludes Haije Stigter.
