Vroon Offshore Services take delivery of VOS AresVessel & ROV News // January 9, 2012
Vroon Offshore Services has taken delivery of a new addition to its offshore fleet, VOS Ares, an 'A'class anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessel delivered by Fujian Southeast Shipyard in China.
Ares is the fifth in a series of six vessels being built at this yard for Vroon, with the last vessel also scheduled for delivery this month.
The 'A' class vessels are slightly more advanced than the 'H' type" and 'T' Type AHTS vessels also operated by Vroon, having a bigger bow thruster and stern thruster. Consequently, they have improved manoeuvring and station-keeping capabilities. The VOS Ares has a DP-1 notation.
