VOS Partner deliveredVessel & ROV News // January 27, 2016
14 January 2016 saw Vroon Offshore take delivery of VOS Partner. The vessel was handed over to Vroon during a ceremony held at Cosco Guangdong Shipyard in China.
VOS Partner is the third of six PX121-type PSVs being built at the Shipyard for Vroon. The vessel has the Ulstein X-BOW hull concept.
In addition, the ships comply with ABS class requirements for dynamic-positioning system Class II (DPS-2) and reduced noise and vibration to satisfy HAB(WB).
"In combination with the X-BOW," said Vroon Offshore, "these measures guarantee benefits to the charterer in operation and fuel efficiency, as well as higher comfort standards for the crew."
With a length of 83.4m and a beam of 18m the vessels provide 850m2 of deck space and a loading capacity of 4,200 tonnes.
The remaining PX121s will be delivered to the company later this year.
