The latest addition to the North Star Shipping managed fleet has been named Grampian Confidence.
An NSS-IMT 948 designed Emergency Response and Rescue Vessel (ERRV), Confidence is equipped with two daughter craft and one fast rescue craft.
The newly launched vessel is part of an ongoing investment programme, worth £130 million, by global shipping and energy services firm The Craig Group that began in 2003.
A total of seven vessels of this type are currently in service and a further four, of which Confidence is one, are on course to be delivered in the next twelve months.

She is the eighth vessel of this class launched and joins the fleet to support operations with CNR International at the Ninian Complex in the East Shetland basin in April 2010.
