We are pleased to announce that we have taken delivery of VOS Sugar, the newest addition to the Vroon Offshore Services fleet. The vessel was handed over to the company in a short ceremony held on Tuesday 2 February 2016 at Fujian Southeast Shipbuilding in China.
VOS Sugar is a DP2, SPS-coded, 68-metre subsea-support vessel (SSV) and the first of two newbuilding SSVs being built at Fujian. Sister vessel, VOS Star, will be delivered to Vroon later this year. These modern vessels are fitted with active heave-compensated crane and one retractable plus one super-silent tunnel bow thruster, enhancing DP performance, fuel efficiency and crew/client wellbeing. In addition, the independent, high-speed client communication system - including internet connectivity and hotel-type comfort - ensures optimum on-board comfort for client personnel.
These new additions form part of the SSV fleet expansion, providing advanced, efficient and versatile options in a variety of offshore sub-segments, including windfarm support, walk-to-work and IRM operations. The VOS SSV portfolio is based on vessel designs developed by Vroon’s Performance and Engineering Department, reflecting both client specifications, market requirements and substantial in-house offshore experience.
VOS Sugar left the shipyard last weekend at the start of her journey to the North Sea. After arrival in Europe, she will be further outfitted and available for the 2016 subsea season. She will be operated by Vroon Offshore Services Den Helder.
We wish the vessel and all crew members safe and successful operations.
