    Vroon Offshore Services take delivery of VOS Aphrodite

    Vessel & ROV News // April 19, 2011

    Vroon Offshore Services (VOS) have taken delivery of a new addition to its offshore fleet. VOS Aphrodite, an anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessel built at the Fujian Shipyard in China, was delivered on 21 March 2011, in China.

    The vessel is the second in a series of eight 'A' types that will be delivered during the next 18 months, following her sister vessel, VOS Achilles.

    The 'A' vessel type is slightly more advanced than the 'H' type and 'T'-Type AHTS vessels that Vroon operates, having a bigger bow thruster and stern thruster.

    As a consequence, these vessels have better manoeuvring and station-keeping capabilities. VOS Aphrodite has a DP1 notation.
