Vroon has announced that the walk-to-work vessel VOS Start is to be equipped with the brand-new Barge Master Gangway. This unique combination will enable safe and efficient transfer of personnel and cargo. The Barge Master Gangway incorporates an access tower with elevator, providing stepless access. The adjustable pedestal provides full flexibility in landing heights. With the participation of Bosch Rexroth in the Barge Master team, the highest quality and safety standards are guaranteed. This unrivalled, next-generation walk-to-work vessel will be available to the offshore industry in Q2 2017.

“During the development of the gangway we worked closely together with Vroon”, says Martijn Koppert, CEO of Barge Master. “We developed a total logistics solution for efficient installation and maintenance of offshore platforms and wind turbines. The small footprint, its light weight and the modular design with hoisting, elevator and many other options have led to this next-generation gangway. The end product is a fit-for-purpose gangway system that can be purchased or hired at a very competitive price. We are convinced that this is the gangway clients are looking for nowadays.”

“Making our clients successful by providing safe and efficient solutions, now and in the future, is what Vroon Offshore Services is about”, says Jan-Piet Baars, Vroon Group Director Offshore. “Our next-generation walk-to-work vessel VOS Start will offer a very high standard of on-board hotel experience for up to 60 client personnel, plus a state-of-the-art walk-to-work configuration, supported by Barge Master.”
