100th Ulstein-designed vessel launched in China

Vroon’s latest platform supply vessel has been launched at COSCO Guangdong Shipyard in China.

The vassel named “VOS Partner” is the third of six PX121-type PSVs being constructed at COSCO Guangdong Shipyard for Vroon and featuring the Ulstein-patented X-BOW® design to provide smoother vessel movements in harsher conditions.

In addition, these ships comply with ABS class requirements for dynamic-positioning system Class II (DPS-2) and reduced noise and vibration to satisfy HAB(WB). In combination with the X-BOW®, these measures guarantee benefits to the charterer in operation and fuel efficiency, as well as higher safety and comfort standards for the crew. With a length of 83.4 metres and a beam of 18 metres, these vessels provide 850 m2 deck space and a load capacity of 4,200 tonnes (dwt).

Vroon also highlighted the fact that the VOS Partner is the 100th Ulstein-design vessel. This milestone has been achieved by Ulstein in 14 years, with 74 of the contracts signed for the X–BOW® design.

The six PX121s destined for Vroon will be delivered during 2015/2016 and will operate in European waters under the management of Vroon Offshore Services Den Helder.
