Naming ceremony held for VOS StartVessel & ROV News // July 24, 2017
Vroon Offshore held a naming ceremony for VOS Start on 20 July at Damen Shiprepair in Amsterdam.
VOS Start, Vroon’s first subsea support/walk-to-work vessel was purpose-built to support offshore operations in the renewable industry and for walk-to-work projects in the oil and gas industry. The vessel is equipped with a Bargemaster motion-compensated gangway system and an active heave-compensated crane.
VOS Start will be delivered to MHI Vestas Offshore Wind in August, at the start of her first charter and will provide offshore logistic support, accommodation and walk-to-work services during construction of the Walney Extension offshore windfarm.
A sister vessel, VOS Stone, will be delivered to Vroon by Fujian Southeast Shipbuilding in China this week.
