VOS Fairness arrives in AberdeenVessel & ROV News // October 6, 2014
Vroon’s ERRV, VOS Fairness, recently arrived in Aberdeen, following a journey from Nanjing East Star Shipyard in China.
VOS Fairness is a Class-A emergency response and rescue vessel, equipped with two daughter craft and one fast-rescue craft. She is the second delivery in a newbuilding programme of 10 vessels, with six 50m ERRVs being built at Nanjing and four 60m FSVs under construction at Fujian Southeast Shipyard, also in China.
The vessel has what Vroon describes as "a revolutionary, wave-piercing bow shape, which has been specially designed for Vroon... which reduces the impact of waves and results in increased comfort on board and improved fuel efficiency." Crew comfort and fuel efficiency on location are further enhanced by a drop-down Aquamaster.
VOS Fairness will operate in the North Sea out of Aberdeen. The vessel was due to start a long-term charter on 1 October.
