Vroon subsea vessel namedVessel & ROV News // April 22, 2016
Vroon Offshore's subsea support vessel (SSV) VOS Sugar has been formally named in a ceremony on 21 April in IJmuiden in The Netherlands.
VOS Sugar is a DP2, SPS-classed, 68m subsea-support vessel and one of two newbuilding SSVs to have been constructed at Fujian Southeast Shipbuilding in China.
VOS Sugar arrived in Amsterdam earlier this month. Following installation of an active heave-compensated crane, the ship is now ready to start her first charter in the subsea support market. The vessel's first project is for NDE, for whom it will undertake dive operations and maintenance work on turbine foundations on an offshore windfarm in German waters.
To provide safe and easy access to the wind turbines the vessel has been fitted with a motion compensated offshore access system. The ship also has a high level of accommodation and low noise and vibration levels.
