    VOS Hera repositioned to North Sea

    Vessel & ROV News // November 28, 2014

    Vroon Offshore Services says VOS Hera has been moved to join its Aberdeen fleet.
     
    Following her previous successful deployment for Vroon Offshore Italia SRL, the vessel has now been repositioned within the Vroon fleet to Aberdeen. She will operate under the UK flag, with Aberdeen as home port.
     
    VOS Hera was built in 2010 at Fujian SouthEast Shipyard in China. She is a 65 tonne bollard pull class B emergency response and rescue vessel (ERRV), equipped with one daughter craft and one fast-rescue craft, tanker-assist and Fi-Fi 1 capabilities.
     
    In addition to her primary tasks as an ERRV, VOS Heraís extra classification as tanker-assist vessel means she can be employed in three additional core activities: emergency tanker towing; heading control, assisting a tanker in keeping its heading during connecting or disconnecting at an offshore installation; and single-anchor loading (SAL) hose handling, picking up a hose from the seabed and rotating the system in the direction of a tankerís approach.
     
    VOS Hera is the second tanker-assist vessel being redeployed to the Aberdeen fleet this year, joining sister vessel, VOS Hades. On arrival in Aberdeen she will be prepared for ERRV duties.

    The vessel was due to starting her first charter on 27 November.
