In 2017 VONK started the BLUEWATER project.

The whole project consisted of an overhaul of the ship called Aoka Mizu, Japanese for blue water. This ship was a FPSO (Floating Production, Storage and Offloading). 

The scope for VONK consisted initially of maintenance and modifications on the electrical system. During the project the expertise of VONK was appreciated a lot and the complexity was more difficult than initially foreseen by our client. VONK had the right test equipment and manpower to do a lot of additional tests and backups on the electrical safety protection systems. We were also invited to carry out additional tests with the presence of DNV GL, the company responsible to certify the ship to be able to sail out. Additional documentation was also done to fill the need of DNV GL to achieve certification of the ship. 

At this moment the ship is at sea and is connected to the oil field successfully.
