    News // October 24, 2007

    Vroon Offshore Services has announced that it has acquired all of the shares in SocietÓ Armamento Lavori Marittimi (SALM) SRL in Ancona, Italy.

    SALM is a well-established offshore utility vessel operator, owning five vessels, with one newbuilding on order.

    All of its vessels are operated under long-term contracts with clients in the Adriatic and Mediterranean.

    Management of the SALM fleet will be transferred to Vroon's office in Genoa at the start of 2008.
