Royal Dirkzwager, offers a variety of services to the Oil & Gas industry.
With today’s large number of vessel movements, the safety of oil and gas
installations and other valuable assets is a major concern. Royal Dirkzwager´s
deep-sea pilots are frequently present on board offshore oil & gas platforms,
pipe and cable laying barges and survey-vessels, serving as VTS pilots.

Our Offshore VTS pilots supervise the traffic in the vicinity of an offshore project in
progress as well as the provision and broadcast of safety information to ships.
By establishing Offshore VTS in such ’sensitive’ areas, the other sea traffic is observed 24/7,
safety information is broadcasted regularly and, if necessary, vessels are warned and/or forced
to deviate from their dangerous course.

Onshore and offshore monitoring

Royal Dirkzwager offers a unique service to protect Offshore assets during their
lifecycle by means of onsite and remote monitoring. The primary aim of these

Dirkzwager offers a solution for day-to-day traffic management and operation of
a wind or tidal energy farm during its life cycle. With the stationing of our own VTS
pilots during the construction and the remote monitoring from our onshore Maritime
Control Center we assist in protecting offshore wind and tidal energy farms against
loss or damage resulting from collisions with vessels.
