Case Study: Working With Van Oord Personeels B.V

Back to Blogs


For nearly 6 years, we’ve successfully worked with Van Oord Personeels B.V – supplying manpower for offshore wind installations, dredging, and cable laying projects. But most recently, we’re proud to have supported work on the advanced offshore installation vessel, the Aeolus, in France.

The project

The Aeolus has been responsible for drilling and pin pile installation operations for the jacket foundations on the Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farm. WRS’ role was to support their crew.

The requirements

Our relationship with Van Oord Personeels B.V has seen significant growth over time – and throughout, we have faced challenging requirements, with this project being no different:

  • Tight turnaround times

  • Complex payroll solutions

  • Host-country specific regulations

The WRS solution

From start to finish, we provided Van Oord Personeels B.V with compliant solutions that fit their timeframe:

  • Sourced crew with the correct certifications.

  • Where further training of personnel was required, we arranged this.

  • Supplied a French payroll service to compliantly arrange tax and social security payments.

  • Provided ongoing support to the crew of the Aeolus for the past two years.
