    The latest Emergency Response and Rescue Vessel (ERRV) for North Star Shipping, Grampian Dynamic, was launched on 27 May at Balenciaga Shipyard in Northern Spain.

    This is the first in a series of six new vessels, commissioned by Craig Group in a 70 million investment.

    Douglas Craig, Chairman and Managing Director of Craig Group, said: "This significant investment is part of our continued drive to operate the largest and most modern British wholly owned fleet engaged in the UK offshore industry.

    The vessel is 50m long with one daughter craft and one fast rescue craft and survival facilities.

    Grampian Dynamic is one of six new vessels to be delivered to North Star Shipping during 2014 and 2016. Three further D-Class IMT 950 ERRVs along with two F-Class IMT 958 ERRVs will also be delivered to replace existing tonnage in the fleet.
