The heavy transport vessel 'Swan' of Dockwise Shipping
in Breda, The Netherlands again
delivered an accommodation platform in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Dockwise was awarded the contract for sea transportation
of the accommodation and maintenance platform Seafox 2 -managed and operated by Workfox of IJmuiden, The Netherlands- from Mexico
to The Netherlands.
”For the second time within 3 weeks we delivered an accommodation platform for support in one of the North sea fields,” said General Manager Commercial Affairs Rob Schoenmaker
of Dockwise. “Due to the present high safety standards in the North Sea Dutch
operators like Workfox
are able to position their specialized units in the oil and gas fields
of the various oil companies
.” The Seafox 2 has a commitment with Total for accommodation support in the various Dutch oil fields
