    Vroon Offshore Services takes delivery of VOS Achilles

    Vessel & ROV News // March 3, 2011

    Vroon Offshore Services (VOS) has taken delivery of a new addition to its offshore fleet.

    VOS Achilles, an anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessel built at the Fujian Shipyard in China, was delivered on 25 February 2011 in China.

    She is the first in a series of eight 'A' types that will be delivered during the next 18 months.

    The 'A' is slightly more advanced than the company's 'H' type and 'T' type AHTS and has a bigger bow thruster (8 tonnes) and stern thruster (6 tonnes) and better manoeuvring and stationkeeping capabilities. The vessel also has DP 1 notation.
