VOS Star deliveredVessel & ROV News // April 19, 2016
Vroon Offshore Services has taken delivery of VOS Star from Fujian Southeast Shipbuilding in China. The vessel was delivered on 13 April 2016 and is a DP2, SPS-coded, 68m subsea support vessel, the second of two newbuilding SSVs that have been constructed at Fujian.
Sister vessel VOS Sugar was delivered to Vroon earlier this year and will be named in a ceremony to be held later this week in IJmuiden, the Netherlands.
Both vessels feature an active heave-compensated crane, plus a retractable and a super-silent tunnel bow thruster, enhancing DP performance, fuel efficiency and features for crew/client wellbeing. A high-speed client communication system - including internet connectivity and hotel-type comfort - ensures optimum on-board facilities for client personnel.
VOS Sugar and VOS Star form an expansion of Vroon’s SSV fleet, enabling provision of advanced, efficient and versatile options in a variety of offshore sub-segments, including windfarm support, walk-to-work and IMR.
