BP Trinidad and Tobago has hired three emergency rescue and response vessels (ERRVs) from offshore support vessel provider Vroon.
Vroon said on Monday that BP had hired the vessels from its subsidiary, Vroon Offshore Services Aberdeen.
The company did not provide any specifics regarding the deal but did describe it as “a multiple year, multi-million-pound contract.”
According to the company, Vroon will provide the VOS Gorgeous, the VOS Fabulous, and the VOS Grace to support BP’s operations in the Caribbean.
These vessels and their crews have departed from North Sea waters to service the contract and Vroon Offshore will establish a local presence in Trinidad and Tobago to support them.
ERRVs are fully equipped to recover and rescue people from the water, provide a place of safety and medical aid. They also monitor the safety zone, helping to avoid collisions, act as a first response in handling oil spills and as a reserve radio station.
This contract follows a 2018 agreement between BP and Vroon Offshore to supply five ERRVs in the North Sea and West of Shetland on a long-term contract.
Craig Harvie, managing director of Vroon Offshore Services Aberdeen, said: “The award of this major contract, which further strengthens our relationship with BP, underlines their appreciation of the benefits of implementing the proven North Sea ERRV model.”
