    Innovative platform supply vessel VOS Pride delivered

    Yard News // September 11, 2015

    VOS Offshore has confirmed that, at the end of August, it took delivery of VOS Pride, a PSV built by Fujian Southeast Shipyard in China.

    VOS Pride is the first in a series of eight sister vessels ordered by Vroon Offshore Services. All of the vessels have an SPS code and are equipped with full (underdeck) supply capabilities, that include stainless-steel tanks for the carriage of methanol. They also provide accommodation and work space for a total of 52 (client staff and up to 14 crew members). The other seven vessels will be delivered to Vroon later this year and in 2016.
     
    The vessels havea free deck space of 720m2 and are based on a design by Khiam Chuan Marine (KCM), working closely with Vroon’s newbuilding engineering department, renowned yacht designer KER Yacht Design & Engineering and Force Technology in Copenhagen to fully optimise the vessel to ensure favourable motion and seakeeping ability and good fuel consumption in DP mode and during transit.
     
    VOS Pride left the shipyard on 7 September and will be managed by Vroon Offshore Services in Singapore.
