    Vroon Offshore Services complete Italian fleet renewal programme

    Vessel & ROV News // April 27, 2010

    Vroon Offshore Services (VOS) Srl in Genoa, Italy has completed its fleet-renewal programme. During the past six months, five vessels have been delivered to the Italian-flagged fleet.

    The five vessels are:

    - a PSV, VOS Energy, built in 2008 and further upgraded upon arrival in Italy to include oil-recovery capability;
    - four anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessels, built in China, VOS Hades and VOS Hestia, both built in 2009; and VOS Hera and VOS Tethys both built in 2010.

    All of the new vessels are working under long-term contracts with an Italian oil company in the Adriatic Sea.

    At present, VOS operates a total of 13 Italian-flagged offshore vessels and it is anticipated that a number of additional new vessels will join the Italian-flag fleet during the coming 12 to 18 months. Some older vessels will be divested.

    In total, VOS operates a fleet of more than 100 offshore-support vessels and has some 20 new vessels on order.
